DOLCE & GABBANA DRESS
In my imagination this is how exactly an elegant Italian Lady looks in her Dolce & Gabbana dress.
I was highly inspired by the Dolce & Gabbana ‘s 2016 advertising campaign that was telling an Italian summer fun story including all the simple little happy things and moments from family to mothers – fruit stalls to small shops – from coffee to cozy dinning tables.
I had this Italian mama image that is wearing her super colourful Majoulica printed dress , shopping for her hubby and kids in one of the Italian villages’ local market.
The print itself tells about a rich very ancient culture going back to the Renaissance period. How phenomenal is to wear a dress that is inspired by a country’s culture itself and still looking very feminine and what if it is all designed by Dolce & Gabbana? I must admit that I got my obsession with the brand after being a mother and saw their mama collection that holds real life touchy stories and showing the importance of the strong women in our life and in the community.
I tried o stick to my imagination and make this Italian lady wear some comfy Hermes slippers and make her – for the sake of her bag obsession – take not only one but also her straw basket bag out – Double Fun.
It made many people on my Instagram account to get confused about the double bag idea. So why two bags? I guess the straw bag trend is so useful and the best useful idea for a woman like me that always has million things to carry when she is out. Now I use my basket for my extra stuff to the office , traveling and not to mention many more..
Here my basket was for grocery shopping. After my photoshoot , my husband saw the basket full of lemons and he couldn’t help but comment about it. He loved the idea!
The whole look with the basket obviously reminds us of our cute grandma’s shopping experiences with their tinny coin purses and huge straw baskets walking around the markets picking the best apples.
Iam so excited to here about your thoughts about this cute story and the look behinds it.
