For fashion that looks good enough to eat, trust Dolce&Gabbana to come up with a novel way of interpreting well loved and well known ingredients: Veggies!
The 1950s inspired SS12 fashion show was a veritable cornucopia of extravagant, ironic and colourful prints. The iconic irreverence and often humorous edge that Dolce&Gabbana lends to their fashion is embodied in the oversize vegetable prints, and accessories in the SS12 collection.The turgid deep purple aubergines from the collection are a celebration of nature. Unusually, these vegetables have been metamorphosed into a sexy fashion statement when printed onto flowing sheer organza. With such a special dress build on the transparency and opt for these novel Mary Janes. And for a touch of irony, bow pasta earrings are a tasty treat.
Tomatoes are intrinsically linked to both the Italian countryside and cooking. Printed on this crepè jacquard bloomer suit they make even more of a statement. The embellished buttons add a precious element to the ironic concept. The gold weaved paper Dolce Bag is an essential statement, while the lace and patent leather sandals add an edge.
This crepè organza full skirt dress is an iconic image from the fashion show. The body hugging bodice with emphasis on the waist and hips create a 1950s inspired statement that will stop traffic. Add lace peep toe laced shoes and the must have SS12 bag: a weaved PVC mini Dolce Bag.
Add some spice to your day with this pepper printed ensemble. Thoroughly on trend with both a full skirt and a mid drift baring top, this is another must have from the SS12 collection. Mix and match the prints with a matelassé onion print shoulder bag with crochet trim and add some height with these vintage inspired weaved PVC platforms.
This courgette print cotton playsuit is young, fun and unique. Match it to a gilded Dolce Bag and matching see-through sandals. For a final touch, throw on a pair of yellow retro sunglasses and tomato and medals earrings.
Onions, Tomatoes, Peppers, Aubergines and Courgettes. Which is your favourite? Or if you can’t make up your mind, may I suggest you cook up a fashion Capponata.
