Going back in time and taking the traditional out of a certain place…SICILY, the famous world known Italian island. Known for traditional living and family strength. The beautiful Sicilian women, female curves, colored garments…living on the sea, striped umbrellas on the beach…the culture, the food, the lifestyle.

I love it when designers stay in their own country with the inspiration, proud to show to the world their own home place. The colors and craftsmanship in the collection give the collection the originality and mirrors perfectly the beautiful island of SICILY.

That are just a few words given to this amazing collection of Dolce & Gabbana s/s 2013.
I remember the two weeks I spend in Sicily (Palermo) about 15 years ago. I was invited to stay in a friend’s house, a Sicilian family, and was amazed about their strong relationships in the family. I didn’t visit more than the town but I lived on a similar island for a while (Crete, Greece) and I know what means island life with strong traditions, sun…sea and family units. I’m absolutely sure that I will visit and spend some more time traveling through Sicily very soon. In the meantime I enjoy watching this beautiful collection.
