Dolce&Gabbana Alta Moda – homage to Sophia Loren

This summer Dolce & Gabbana celebrated Sophia Loren and Naples with a their Alta Moda fall/winter 2016  show on Sautrday,a Naples. “This is my place, my land. Sometimes, it is not just about the clothes,” declared Domenico Dolce, backstage.“It is inspired by Sophia, by Naples, and tradition.“   Miss Loren made her way to be seated on a gilded velvet throne on a grandstand built on one of Naples’s oldest thoroughfares.The show  began: a corseted swimsuit with a white satin sash, the words Miss Eleganza sewn in gold beads. It was a reminder that Sophia Loren’s first step to fame.Each look was garlanded with collaged headresses. There were balconette necklines and curvy pencil skirts,sexy dresses with swishing hems reminiscent of Loren’s “poor-girl” ’40s roles; and incredibly fitted black suits and coats made for going to mass, but worn over sensual satin slips. The show and an awesome evening ended with final firework.
