Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 Mosaic Inspiration

They did it again. I was waiting for the fall 2013 show with impatience. I knew they were going to give me something but I wasn’t expecting this much. A collection widely inspired by the byzantine religious mosaic art of the XII century. Kings, saints , animals and symbols of the byzantine iconography are reproduced with extraordinary craftsmanship on garments and accessorizes , embellished by precious stones, sequins and filigree. Enjoy.
