Inspiration // Elevated Craft // Dolce & Gabbana's Summer 2016 collection

It's fair to say I'll always find something to love in any D&G collection - I love the way they always try something new, incorporate tradition, whether through historical references of craft techniques... yet always keeping it super sexy, super feminine.

So no surprises then that I love the new 2016 Summer collection! But given we can't all afford to don some D&G what inspiration can we take from their look?

To start with, stunning floral embroideries, red and white stand up off a black background...

Or layer embroideries over lace and wear with a simple came underneath...

Add pom poms to rafia or wicker baskets... but most of all, don't be afraid of upping the details!

While there was a variety of influence, I couldn't help but love the references to Italy the most, from touristic hotspots to the Virgin Mary... stunning as always.
