What: Dolce & Gabbana Womenswear Spring/Summer 2016.  Italian Holiday Fashion Postcard "Italia is Love". Tribute to Italy, its resort cities, holiday and tourist destinations...

Espresso and Alta Moda: Scene backdrop for Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2016's Sarah Mower stated (of the Dolce & Gabbana
Spring/Summer 2016" collection:
inspiration boards were pasted with printouts of vintage posters advertising
the attractions of Capri, Venice, Rome, and Florence; movie stills of Italian
stars; and pictures of all kinds of handmade, homemade souvenir embroideries.
This summer, the designers have moved on from exploring Sicilian history to
seeing Italy’s glories through the eyes of the foreign tourists who began to
flood into the country after World War II. There, visitors found little shops
selling embroidered circle skirts and sundresses, printed scarves, sandals,
straw hats—things that Italian women had been making at home to cheer
themselves up in times of austerity"
