SICILY 58 AND 62, ICONIC BAGS BY D&G

A story of love, beauty and timeless craftsmanship.

Sicily englobes the Dolce&Gabbana world. A world made of history, traditions, colours, passion and femininity.
Drawing inspiration from sunny Trinacria, the story of the Sicily bag began in 2009 and, thanks to its elegant and modern lines, is still the most iconic of Dolce&Gabbana bags.
Since the day it was created, the Sicily bag has been the object of several variations while still keeping its most recognizable detail intact: the characteristic upper handle fixed to two, leather-covered metal cylinders. Rich in style, decorations and artisan details, the various versions of the Sicily bag range from the most classic in leather to those in printed canvas, crochet and Sicilian lace and the most luxurious versions in hand-painted python and crocodile skin, confirming their elegance and structure and continuing to astound with their strong identity and femininity.
Sicily 58 and 62, whose names refer to the years in which Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were born, are yet another evolution of the iconic Sicily bag. The designers have re-interpreted the classic and institutional model by renewing the construction and use of top-quality skins to target a sophisticated and demanding clientele.

The Sicily bag’s prestigious French leather undergoes a special treatment to ensure its natural finish and the suede lining is made using the central part of the skin to guarantee the highest quality standards. The bag features a raw edge construction with smooth and rounded finishing. The edges are then brushed to eliminate any impurities and guarantee a smooth surface. The colour is applied twice, respecting drying times. The interior of the bag is functional and spacious with two separate compartments divided by an adjustable leather insert. The shoulder straps can alter the capacity of the bag using small buttons personalized with the D&G logo. The two models are further embellished with an external plaque bearing the logo and made with an innovative system that gives it a two-colour effect.

Sicily 58 has a classic flap on the outside with removable on top handles that can be inter-exchanged or personalized with different colours and materials. It also has a frontal flap with hidden magnetic clips and side gussets featuring small straps with press studs, as well as the classic metal feet on the bottom. It is available in black, dark grey, poppy red, powder pink, sea blue, onyx, bottle blue, orange, mahogany and mud.

The smaller, elegant and structured model of Sicily 58, has exclusive finishings and several compartments providing optimal space organization. It features removable on top handles, an adjustable and detachable strap in calfskin, a flat front pocket, a further external compartment on the rear and can be found in black, powder pink, poppy red, sea blue, emerald green, periwinkle, lavender, optic white, plum and leather.
Sicily 62 is a shopper with a central opening on both sides and is available in two different sizes. The large, versatile and structured version features elegant geometries and has two compartments with a central divide for practical space organization. It is available in black, poppy red, sea blue and onyx. The small version has two compartments with a central divide, removable on top handle and can be purchased in black, dark grey, powder pink, poppy red, pink, gold, ochre/ebony, bordeaux / mahogany and lavender.
Sicily 58 and 62 are indispensable accessories for every season and occasion. A must have for the unrivalled D&G woman. (Nathalie Anne Dodd)
