What feels more like summer than big, bright, beautiful lemons?!
After traveling to Capri, I was completely inspired by the beauty of lemons. The lemons there are so large, they’re probably equivalent to 3 – 4 of our lemons here in America! Everything there revolves around them…the food, the drinks, the decor and the fashion.
Dolce & Gabbana has taken a significant part in that role and created a Sicily Collection that has continued to be modified and sold in Capri up to today!
This particular ad caught my eye in a few of the latest SS2016 fashion magazines:
In July 2014, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce hosted a legendary show on location in Capri in a cove near the Faraglioni twin rocks. Only 200 of their best clients and press were invited to the exclusive show, and the fashion was to DIE FOR.
Touches of Capri adorn each look with elegance and grace, showing off the passion Dolce & Gabbana have for their home.
There are many ways to incorporate this look into your Summer fashions yourself!
