10 London-Inspired Looks At Dolce & Gabbana's Alta Moda Show
The first look that came down the runway set the tone for the show, and it was a pure celebration of all things British. Dolce & Gabbana's signature lace blouses were remade with a Victorian collar and layered sleeves, styled with a sequined Union Jack skirt and top hat with pheasant feathers.
Nothing says modern-day monarch quite like a cape coat. Everything about this look screams fit for a queen—from the luxe brocade patchworks, jewel buttons, and fur trimmings, right down to the crystal-encrusted pumps.
There are dinner jackets, and then there are Dolce & Gabbana dinner jackets. A heavily embroidered velvet jacket with fur lined cuffs and a structured high collar—it's regal in every sense.
Dolce & Gabbana dresses are always a big hit at any society soirée, but it was certainly the capes that stole the show. This rich combination of jet black fur and gold brocade coupled with fur trim—and topped with vintage veiled hat—is pure decadence.
The show was held on November 11, and this look was a lovely gesture to honour Remembrance Day. This long-sleeved sequined Union Jack dress was topped with a headpiece featuring a poppy flower nestled in chic black netting.
Every man needs a timeless tuxedo and this is a shining example. Updated in black velvet with sharp white trimmings and buttons, this is a perfect look for any black tie affair.
A collection dedicated to all things British would be incomplete without a nod to the punk era, and this look encapsulates everything we loved about London in the late 70's—ripped tartan, a slogan tee and safety pins.
A fairytale princess comes to life in this look that combines lace embroidered tulle with a dark feather cape cascading over the shoulders.
Domenico and Stefano definitely took the "more is more" approach in the design of this gown. Puffy princess sleeves, pearl trimmings, red leather gloves and layers of black tulle for the skirt—need we say more?
With the holiday season fast approaching, we've all got holiday parties on our mind and Dolce & Gabbana takes the gold when it comes to evening attire. This tuxedo coat in antique gold velvet is arguably the most standout look from Alta Sartoria.
