Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2013 show looked like a walking Mediterranean vacation - happy colors, straw sandals, beachwear... And based on the cheery, backstage candids, the models may have felt a little of that vacation spirit!
I later read that Dolce & Gabbana’s native Sicily served as inspiration for the collection, which is entitled “Sea, Sun, and Love”. While you may not love every look, you may enjoy how the duo translated a place—its mood and culture—into fashionable wares as explained via live tweets during the show.
