Dolce & Gabbana SS14


Sicily’s Greece-inflected mythology influenced the Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2014 Show.

Some Greece-inspired collections : Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2006 (the « night » section of this show was based on Greek goddesses), Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2014 Menswear (this collection references Sicily’s interaction with Greece in the ancient world), Emanuel Ungaro by Giambattista Valli Spring/Summer 2005 (this Sirtaki-inspired show paid homage to the Greek costume), Emilio Pucci by Peter Dundas Spring/Summer 2011 (in part), Grès (since 1941, Grès has often presented draped clothes which take inspiration from Ancient Greece’s goddesses), Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring/Summer 2006 (« Homage to Greece / Hommage à la Grèce » collection), Kaufmanfranco Resort 2014 (this collection showcases a modern version of Jacqueline Onassis in the Greek islands), Marco De Vincenzo Spring/Summer 2010 (this collection paid tribute to the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece), Marios Schwab Spring/Summer 2009 (this collection spotlighted various reinterpretations of the chiton), Marios Schwab Resort 2014 (this collection highlights a shoulder line that is based on the costumes of Greek peasants), Nina Ricci by Peter Copping Resort 2011 (this collection was slightly influenced by Jacqueline Onassis’ ’60s Greek period), Sophia Kokosalaki Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 (some pieces echoed the natural shapes of the Greek landscape), Versace Spring/Summer 2011 (partly), Vionnet by Goga Ashkenazi Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (the scenography of this show referenced Ancient Greece).
