The unveiling of Dolce & Gabbana’s new collections is around the corner. The Italian fashion house has announced that its Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria, Alta Gioielleria, and Alta Orologeria collections will be revealed in Venice from August 28 to 30. During the three-day event, co-founders and designer duo, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce will showcase high fashion, haute couture, and both women’s and men’s high jewelry and watch collections.

According to a statement, the duo’s latest creations will pay tribute to Venice’s artistic legacy and manufacturing industry and will be set against some of the City of Water’s most renowned landmarks.

The shows will also reveal the pieces from the house’s debut NFT collection in collaboration with UNXD, a curated marketplace for digital luxury and culture. Titled ‘Collezione Genesi’ (Genesis Collection), its first concept is named Dress from a Dream, and is based on a vivid dream from the creativity of the designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Additional drops within Collezione Genesi will be unveiled in the coming weeks before the Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria, and Alta Gioielleria shows and will be auctioned exclusively on UNXD.

As part of Dolce & Gabbana’s tradition to unveil each season’s collection in a different region of Italy since 2012, the upcoming event in Venice will be the latest stage of this tour, the Grand Tour of Italy. The first Alta Moda Collection, for instance, was revealed in Taormina, a hilltop town on the east coast of Sicily, Italy, which visited some of the most fascinating places on the peninsula. In 2020, however, the designers had to unveil their Alta Moda and Alta Sartoria offerings via a virtual runway show.
