D&G Monreale Cathedrals' Mosaics

Venetian and Byzantine

Similar to their Spring 2013 RTW collection, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana turn to Sicily, their home, as their inspiration, specifically the  Monreale Cathedrals' magnificent Venetian and Byzantine mosaiced interior.  Can you imagine the immense handwork and beading that went into these mosaics of the Cathedral of Monreale?  Unreal..

Dolce and Gabbana's love for their city brightly shows through this exquisite collection.  The soft lace, encrusted jewels, and embroidery provide a sense of adoration for Italy.   

I can't wait to go there myself...

See you next time!

Ciao.
