Other designers have drawn influence from the island before, with Dolce & Gabbana’s Domenico Dolce frequently referencing Sicily’s rich heritage and history, from architectural cathedrals to bustling market squares. Here though, de Vincenzo went for a lighter approach, instead turning his attention to summer parties, open air cinemas and the easy cheer that comes with summer sun. In the collection that translated to an array of rainbow shades, loose flowing party dresses, ruffled slips and oversized t-shirts tied at the back and worn over floaty sequinned skirts. The ancient names for Sicily – Ultrapharum and Triskelion – were taken out of the history books and reinterpreted as pop type across tops and trimmings. And the finale look, a shimmering crystal embellished tiered dress, will no doubt be a particular favourite for customers and fashion editors alike.
