Dolce & Gabbana: Couture Capri 2015

Dolce & Gabbana’s haute couture, or alta moda, show was molto exclusivo. Staged in a cove on the island of Capri for a select audience of just 200 press and clients, even photography was restricted, except Instagram of course. So, we scoured the accounts of the Instagram-addicted fashion great and mighty to find the best images of the collection. It reminds me of a royal wedding in a Shakespearean play set in Italy. Because, well, it’s regal (just look at the golden crowns and rich textiles), it’s Italian (obviously, it’s Domenico and Stefano we’re talking about here and it’s theatrical (those ballgowns belong in a film or play, don’t they?). It’s beautiful, in a very Italian principessa kind of way. But then Dolce and Gabbana always do Italian principessa well.

I was introduced to the idea of modesty being a virtue that I should embrace as a young girl. For a long time there was pressure from certain circles of friends who said women could only be modest was by wearing boy’s baggy shirts and skirts that reach the ankles in order to hide their bodies.

I was a member of those groups where dressing frumpy was defined as modesty, and all those other people are being impure. I soon discovered that these girls were going about enacting the virtue of modesty in the wrong way.
