The pink dress with the ribbon is cute, nothing amazing. I expected more since this is their debut HC collection

Seriously?


tumblr/queenpoly

This could be mistaken for any RTW collection they have made in the past 2 years ago...I just wanted them to do something special and provocative since this is couture and doesn't have to appeal the average D&G customer

Their "RTW" regularly features work by Lesage, i.e. the same technicians as the actual members Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture.

I get the point people are trying to make by saying it's not really all the different, but that doesn't mean this isn't couture.

I have to repost today's Franca Sozzani daily note...'couse it's quite interesting for this thread.Given that the magic duo: Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana representing one of the Leading brand for Vogue italia (and in general for the italian fashion system), Sozzani is obviously biased ...so many things that she wrote are not objective and all the article need a critical analysis; however i think that's in the end is a good point of start for some reflections...something to distract whit waiting for the full show.

taormina: haute couture between tradtion and innovation
Quote:
The Dolce&Gabbana Haute Couture show was held at the San Domenico Palace Hotel in Taormina. The “Sicilian journey” had already started on Sunday night with the marvelous Norma at the Teatro Greco and the fireworks in front of the spectacular scenery of the Timeo, over the gulf of Taormina and Mount Etna. A long table was laid according to authentic Sicilian tradition with sweets expressly made by local pastry chefs.

The whole show was skillfully directed like a movie with “special appearances” by Monica Bellucci, Laetitia Casta, Scarlett Johansson, Isabella Rossellini, Francesco Scianna and the new face of the next campaign, Bianca Brandolini. Also attending models Naomi, Marpessa and Stephanie Seymour and the Editors in Chief of the various Vogue editions, from China to USA, from Great Britain to Germany, alongside Greece and France.

A jovial and entertaining night. And serene, without the pressure that sometimes official events make you feel. At 6 pm on Monday, another "special" direction for an unexpected event: the procession of San Pancrazio, a further coup de theatre. San Pancrazio, the patron saint to Taormina, is celebrated precisely on July 8th. Another beautiful sight, as we were walking down the alleys from the upper part of town to reach the Hotel and attend the show.

At 7.30 pm we walked into the San Domenico and, like in Peter Greenaway’s The Draughtsman’s Contract, we saw girls wearing black and white lace costumes scattered around the garden. What a sight. The show was held within a unique scenario and featured real haute couture pieces, not only for the cuts but also for the choice of textiles and the refinement of the silhouettes. Lace and double satin tailleurs, embroideries dresses and simple sheath dresses, as well as redingotes and lambskin little coats and painted dresses. Between the two courtyards of the San Domenico models walked following moves studied in detail.

The models were real, beautiful women on mid-heels and showed unique class and elegance. A true vision. Proving you can look unique choosing simplicity, and not a fashionista’s masquerade.

You have to understand class, and know how to convey it. It’s not easy, but the show proved you can. Beautiful Italy, smart and creative!!! This is the image our country should be able to export, dumbfounding even the shrewdest of foreign fashion editors who often remark we do not measure up to the international scene.

A new chapter in the history of Italian fashion was written today.

It looks like Anna's giving the famous 'pursed lips' from The Devil Wears Prada. Me too.

And Scarlett looks like she's saying to Anna: "Let's get the hell outta here. Why did I sign that contract?"

Some dresses reminds me of the S/S 2008 collection. Love the ballgowns though.
