Why Dolce & Gabbana’s Alta Moda And Gioielleria Show Is The Perfect Antidote To A Bleak Year

Like so many brands navigating the restrictions of 2020 and implausibility of ‘putting on a show,’ Dolce & Gabbana have ventured into new territory to showcase their latest Alta Moda (couture) and Alta Gioielleria (high jewelry) collections. No exotic backdrop or far-flung destination this time but rather a three-day celebration via a series of digital events and short films, collectively titled A Family Affair.

Motivated by the pull so many designers must feel between looking back and to the future, juggling creative freedom and classic design and finding cultural relevance while ensuring a commitment to craftsmanship, Dolce & Gabbana have tackled it all with this latest couture collection, showcased via a short film featuring a generational diverse troupe of femme fatale characters.

Set in an ornate villa in Milan, the cast mingles in its various salons dressed in updated classics (the black dress), artistically embroidered and embellished evening wear and standout tailoring – all accessorized in statement jewels and styled with signature Sicilian flair. Inspired by Italian hospitality and the idea of a big family gathering together after a long time apart, different generations – sons, daughters, grandchildren, grandmothers – enjoy each other’s company, singing and dancing while decked out in Dolce & Gabbana’s finest.

For the label’s luxe Alta Gioielleria collection, unadulterated Italian Renaissance elegance was the order of the day with impeccable multi-color gemstones, Rubellite tourmalines, exceptional brown diamonds and South Sea pearls decorating swirling necklaces, floral motif rings and statement tiaras in true maximalist style, all showcased against a backdrop of a stunning Santa Maria Novella building.
