Dolce & Gabbana Channel 1940s Inspired Sillouhettes for Spring

For Spring, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana take inspiration from Ancient Rome, while using 1940s inspired Silhouettes; while giving the collection it’s Glamorous Dolce & Gabbana magic.

Throughout the beginning of the collection, models are seen wearing Beautiful dresses, printed with images of Ancient Roman Ruins. Towards the middle of the collection though, it switches to Golden Cocktail dresses, many with the Ancient Roman coins printed on them. But besides the Ancient Roman theme scene throughout the collection, Dolce & Gabbana also include a more Feminine side to the collection with Beautiful Cherry Blossoms. Looking almost oeuvre, many models channel Beautiful Cherry Blossomed gowns. Perfect for a Spring or Summer wedding.

The silhouettes though, were very 1940s inspired. With Peplum, Lace, Polka Dots, The Fur, and the Iconic Hourglass figure. A style which has always been a favorite of mine. As seen at many of the Fall shows, many of the looks were belted at the waist, creating that very Ladylike Hourglass figure. Dolce & Gabbana interpret that trend, using Gold belts with a Roman coin in the center. Elements of Polka Dots and Fur were also seen throughout many parts of the collection, either paired with an Ancient Roman printed pencil skirt, and paired with an ancient coined full skirt. Each way, Oh-So-Chic and very Dolce & Gabbana.

And the finale, just STUNNING. Filled with an array of Golden Cocktail dresses. Each perfect for a night out, or even to a Wedding.

The collection, overall was extremely Feminine, Sexy, and Modern. I always love how Dolce & Gabbana take inspiration from something totally different each season, making it look Sexy and Flatter just about any Women’s figure. A Sexy Black Lace Dolce & Gabbana dress for Spring? Yes Please!!!!

Ralph Lauren was inspired by life for his Beautiful Spring 2014 collection, as he explained to Harrod’s Marigay McKee at the show. Explaining many of the bursts of brights, and the Beautiful floral and checkered prints. The collection really brings such a Chic Mod 60s vibe with the Monichromatic bright shifts, Round sunglasses a favorite of mine, and the Beautiful preppy Black and White checkers and floral printed get-ups paired with black knee high socks.

The hair was left down straight, with a Chic, effortless bounce to it, very 60s inspired. The makeup left Natural, with some Mascara on the eyelashes.

Lauren begins his collection with the models wearing delicately Beautiful and Classy black pointed-toe pumps, a definite must-have in any women’s closet. When models start coming out in Bright shifts, they wear Beautiful brightly and neutral colored sandals and pumps.

The evening gowns in bursts of Bright colors and with Beautiful ruffles and Sparkles, really bring such a Beautiful, Happy and Fun vibe to the collection. For by far one of my All-time favorite Ralph Lauren shows. A checkered suit pick-me-up in January, yes please!
