While half of the country is dealing with pangs of the polar vortex, a number of weary but hopeful Americans are eager for the long winter to end even though we reside in warm climates. Spring automatically brings the thoughts of warmer weather, lighter clothing and fabrics, longer days and heightened desire to have some outdoor fun. As a blogger, I’m constantly looking for collections and articles of clothing that bring a little ease and enjoyment to an otherwise hectic day. Such is the case with the Spring/Summer Collection for Dolce & Gabbana!
Dolce & Gabbana started trailblazing in 1985 when friends Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana decided to embark on this journey to make fashion less serious and not so sobering. Initially they designed exclusively for women when they launched their first collection in 1987 after their introduction the year prior during Milan Fashion Week. The two later made a name for themselves as rising stars in the men’s apparel industry after launching their men’s collection in 1990. To their celebrity credit they have dressed Beyoncé, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Missy Elliott and Mary J. Blige. Dolce & Gabbana also secured the beautiful, Scarlett Johannson as the face for their make-up and perfume line that launched in 2009.
“Sexy with a sense of humor”, was the opinion shared by Madonna when asked why she loved the designers and decided to let them provide wardrobe Stylings for her tour. That quote was shared in the 1990s and the dynamic-duo are still delivering fashion that is both fun and practical! The Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is practical, sexy, fashion-forward, but most of all fun. The lines, the colors and accessories all work in harmony to help a man convey his confidence the way well designed clothing is intended. The motif is Medieval, Sicilian and daring; with stripes, silks, suits, shorts, bedazzled loafers and colorful oxfords. We have decided to show some of our favorite pieces from the Dolce & Gabbana collection in the pictures that follow. Let us know your favorite look(s) and share a comment below.
