Italian men love their mothers and Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are no exception. Their collection was all about a celebration of motherhood, dedicated to mothers of the world.
The red rose was the recurring motif; it popped up in sequins on a white shift dress, embroidered climbing its way up black guipure lace and red astrakhan dresses, and even, worked into prints featuring the Madonna and child. The closing dresses were a parade of billowy white silk frocks printed in naïve scribbly Crayola drawings – the sort of nursery-stage scruffy-cornered artwork that would proudly be Sellotaped to the wall in any family home. Utterly uplifting.
