This collection for spring 2014 was what Gabbana described as a “new dream”!

It was an imaginary journey through almond trees in blossom, to discover ancient Sicily. Ancient Greek influences like temples and theaters were turn into dress
prints. On the other hand ionic columns reproduced as heels on shoes. Crumbling columns and roman ruins were a repeating motif. Ancient golden coins were joined together to make startling belts, small handbags with chain or handcrafted astonishing dresses.
Two silhouettes dominated: the midi pencil skirt and the mini flared one teamed with blouses with wide sleeves. The designers’ craftsmanship was absolutely stunning from golden dresses with polygons crystals to romantic with silk appliqué petals such as leather skirts with feather sleeveless blouses.
For the finale a gilded army of models stormed the catwalk and offered a really powerful and dazzling vision!
