Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana declare their love for the “Mother” in the Dolce&Gabbana Autumn-Winter 2015/16 collection. The Mama’s Brocade collection draws inspiration from the island of Sicily for a vintage effect. Frames with brocade detailing evoke the furnishings of baroque palazzi, in both the sophisticated embossed monochrome version and its floral cousin, decorated with a bouquet of red roses.
