Gold-plated brass necklaces and bracelets are dotted with delicious enamelled fruit, delicate rosebuds and leopard-print pearls. One or more of these elements can accompany the season’s floral-print dresses or the sexy, total black evening dresses, as well as the carefree and dynamic denim day outfits. A chapter apart is the one that D&G dedicates to bags for which the brand uses the very best materials and all-Italian artisan know-how. In the calfskin versions with floral print from the famous Sicily line, interpreted in a vast array of colours and models, the Maison uses a mixture of embroideries, highly colourful pompoms and tassels, raffia and gem applications with extreme fantasy. Going from the cult bags of the calfskin DG AMORE line – with logo in vintage brass, embellished with pearls and cartouche with the word “amore” uniting the two letters – through to the floral and practical Capri shopping bag, the new, much-coveted Devotion Bag has arrived directly onto the catwalks. Made in matelassè nappa, it is adorned with that supreme symbol of love, the sacred heart. The logoed jewel has a Baroque soul framing “Amore” on the red, hand-made, metal alloy cartouche with pearl and filigree inlay.
