La dolce vita, indeed! The spring summer girlswear collection from Dolce & Gabbana is breathtakingly beautiful. Featuring grand prints of ancient Greek columned buildings, pretty Chinese blossom flowers, glittering gold dresses with coin detail belts, gingham swimwear and gorgeous green tropical leaf prints, as well as the traditional black lace pieces synonymous with the designer label.
Tim Blanks of Style.com reported that "Gabbana described this collection as 'an unconscious dream,' in the sense that the clothes embodied the blend of the real and the irrational that can only be found in dreams." The ethereal styles combined with the emboldened prints certainly conjure up a dreamlike world. You can imagine little girls wearing these dresses while parading along a promenade or chasing around a flower-filled walled garden.
Rosebuds, flowing and floaty bell sleeves and a-line chiffon skirts, as well as shift dresses, were features as seen in the women's ready-to-wear collection. The yellow silk dress above, with the striking column print, is an exact replica of a womenswear piece. Proving that mini-me fashion is, once again, on the rise.
