If Dolce & Gabbana aims to take over Miami fashion and design, its influence is certainly felt. Alta Moda is the heart of couture culture and it fits perfectly in the Latin and South American cultures that define modern Miami. One look at the company’s vibrant home collection and you can see why Miami would open its arms to welcome a takeover.
Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana crafted Alta Moda in 2012 as a commitment to bring art back to fashion. The very first show was a master success and attracted members of the fashion community from all over the world.
The Alta Moda collections shown at Design Miami this week encompass the colorful, unique, and timeless style of Latin culture. You’ll see around 100 looks in a salon-style show. Each piece is handmade and unique in keeping with the traditional bottegas of Latin America.
Dolce & Gabbana Casa Collection
The Dolce & Gabbana Casa collection presented at the Luxury Living Store is bright and colorful with articulate patterns that mess perfectly with Miami’s embrace of the Latin American style. You’ll see furniture and decor designed to show love and hospitality.
In the Luxury Living Store, the designers will debut two new motifs called DG Oro 24K and DG Logo. The golden features of the living room and bedroom where they plan to display the collection act as the perfect backdrop for the intricate Latin-inspired designs associated with the Dolce & sccbuzz Gabbana Casa presentation.
Dolce & Gabbana’s Outside Perspective
Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria, and Dolce & Gabbana Casa are all born of an outsider’s appreciation for Latin culture. They cast all models locally and pulled components of each piece from the traditional style of dress.
You will recognize the influence of flamenco dancers, red flowers, and delicate textiles of lace and silk. Flowy chiffon dresses and corsets capture the feminine expression of Latina fashion, and the polka prints are a delicate way to express an understanding of traditional Latin style. Naturally, there is no shortage of jewels and crystals to add shine to each piece, and you can expect the same from the men’s collection.
The team at Dolce & Gabbana is also proudly representative of multi-generational collaboration. They staffed a team of 50% men and women in their early twenties with an appreciation for learning the art of fatto a mano fashion and the desire to continue the nod to the culture.
Dolce & Gabbana Miami Takeover
The Miami takeover references the Dolce & Gabbana multi-event affair in the city this week. The focus is on the Alta Moda fashion collection for women, the Alta Sartoria collection for men, and the Casa collection for home interiors. They cover every aspect of your life, from how you dress to how you design your Miami home. The design team’s appreciation for the handmade approach to these collections makes viewing and owning them all a special experience.
