Extravagance, Beauty and Opulence: Sicilian Baroque Comes to Sunglasses

The unrelenting splendour of Dolce and Gabbana's autumn/winter 2013 catwalk collection has proved one of the most influential and coveted looks of the season. Finding its native Italy an endless source of inspiration Dolce and Gabbana this season looked to its rich Baroque and Rococo heritage. The frescoes of Sicily, the gilded Venetian stuccos and Neapolitan ceramics of 17th and 18th century Italy were all played out beautifully over clothes rendered in stunning detail. The fashion house, which recently debuted its couture line showed off its craftsmanship with intricate hand-worked gold thread work. And in the true spirit of the Rococo it found its way onto everything. Dresses, coats, capes, shoes, bags, jewellery and sunglasses all took on gilded roses and curlicues. Pieces have become a red carpet favourite Girls Aloud met the Queen in matching embroidered gowns, staunch Dolce and Gabbana fan Dame Helen Mirren has worn pieces from the collection whilst promoting her new Hitchcock film recently. Now that rarified Dolce and Gabbana catwalk comes to eyewear in the Sicilian Baroque collection. Classic sunglass shapes come decorated with the same unmistakable detail found on the brand's Miss Sicily handbag.
