DOLCE & GABBANA’S FULL-ON FAIRYTALE COLLECTION
For all Disney lovers out there, it’s time to fall in love.
Last night, the Dolce & Gabbana Downtown boutique brought a fashion fairytale to life, showcasing the enchanting AW’16 collection.
Guests, who included VIP clients and special members of the press, came out to celebrate the launching of the new collection and were instantly transported into a Disney wonderland. This magical setting was decorated with a life-sized red apple tree, clocks set close to midnight and a large illustrated fairytale book that tells the love story of Dolce & Gabbana’s princess and prince.
Of course, anyone who has ever watched an animated Disney fairytale will find modern interpretations of familiar outfits and themes in the collection. There was a Cinderella glass shoe, glittering sequin dresses perfect for any modern-day princess – including one with a handcrafted mirror embellishment reminiscent of both Beauty and the Beast, and Snow White. Accessories were designed with clocks set just before midnight, referencing Cinderella’s broken spell, and they also featured details straight out of The Nutcracker.
A dedicated playlist of Disney sing-alongs and joyful tracks was brought straight from the Dolce & Gabbana Milan runway show, as guests enjoyed savoury bites and delicious cupcakes shaped like apples, tiaras and ticking clocks. Refreshing drinks were served in creative potion-like tubes labelled with “Poison” for the alcoholic cocktails, or “Antidote” for the soft drinks.
Let’s face it, no one is really too old to be a princess. And so that everyone could try it out, hair experts assisted the invitees with whimsical, embellished headpieces.
Kitschy, maybe but at the very least, the collection was like taking a nostalgic walk down memory lane with that “happily ever after” moment.
