Today marked the end of an era as Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana announced that S/S '12 would be the last ever collection of D&G. And what a farewell show it was, audaciously themed as ever, it gave us countless ways to adorn ourselves with a bevy of silk scarf style prints. From bandeau dresses to skirts to embellished 60's style tunics over micro shorts and glorious vibrant print trousers, it has us craving to jump on the nearest billionaires yacht and set sail for Capri. Accessories were big and bold; oversize straw hats, silk print wrapped wedges, quilted shoulder bags and Sicilian style necklaces dripping with gold coins.
But fear not as in a personal statement from Mr Dolce and Mr Gabbana they promise us 'lots of new projects' and tomorrow (Friday) we'll get to see the first of said projects as the boys launch their brand spanking new Dolce & Gabbana fine Jewellery line. Bravo!
