Dolce Gabbana Spring Summer 2021 Milan Fashion Week. RUNWAY MAGAZINE ® Collections. RUNWAY NOW / RUNWAY NEW
The Dolce & Gabbana Spring Summer 2021 collection, Patchwork di Sicilia, is a tribute to Sicily, an infinite source of inspiration for the Designers. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have visually woven together a tapestry which recounts the fabrics and patterns you might find in Palermo, Catania, Siracusa and Agrigento – creating pieces of patchwork: mixing of fabrics, atmospheres, colors, brocade, poplin, georgette and chiffon.
In this new collection the Designers have captured their experience of “fatto a mano” – handmade craftsmanship. They hope to inspire a love and appreciation for the arts, handmade crafts, and sustainable fashion within a new generation. Each piece is crafted and interpreted by a skilled hand, so that each unique piece has its own personality.
Each artisan and each tailor have sewn together fabrics in a distinctive way according to shapes and colors, allowing each piece of fabric to create its own story. The Designers have also recalled their 1993 collection, inspired by the 70s – the jackets, gilet, skirts, shirts and trousers have been reinterpreted with a new proportion, fabrics and colors.
