This season the drama gets unleashed. We are not talking about over-the-top, out-of-your-mind scenes, but sophisticated silhouettes, immaculate craftsmanship and mesmerising details. At the forefront of the new baroque, there is – without a shimmer of a doubt – Dolce & Gabbana
. With their Sicilian flair and exquisite taste for luxury, they bring a far-gone era of style back to life. The AW17 collection showed an embroidered golden suit with panels of red velvet and a crown as a headpiece to finish off the look. Erdem approaches this theatrical style from another angle with a long skirt in a rich fabric that is combined with a crisp white shirt blouse. Florals also have a prominent role to play in this play of royal sophistication. As seen in the collection of Rochas
in the form of a black coat and designs of Joseph
in a grey flower embroidered suit with wide-legged trousers.
