Motherhood was the theme for Dolce and Gabbana Winter 2016 collection – dolcegabbana.com

In a tribute to mothers everywhere, Dolce & Gabbana presented an astonishingly romantic and feminine collection for winter 2016.

According to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the recent Milan Fashion Week show was titled “Viva la Mama” to the tune of Spice Girls’ “Mama”. It wasn’t your typical catwalk of gorgeous fashion models; it was loveable and playful as the models were featured with their own babies and toddlers, many in matching outfits. There was even a pregnant model.

Red roses were the signature motif of the Dolce & Gabbana collection, appearing as prints and embroidery on dresses, from spring pastels of light blue and pink to rich reds and blacks. Images of Madonna with Child were present on some pieces.

“Ti voglio bene” meaning, “I love you” in Italian, and appeared written on sexy black lace dresses. “Mamma” or “I love you mother” was sewn onto dresses and pencil skirts.

Dolce & Gabbana's collection had something for every woman, or should I say, every mother. From black lace dresses with fine details such as fur in midi lengths, to high collars and corset shaped bodices, all very Italian like.

Interestingly, Dolce & Gabbana introduced some lighthearted dresses with colourful childlike drawings scribbled all over them, perhaps inspired by Angelina Jolie's wedding gown from last year.

In Italian households the mother rules, and Dolce & Gabbana will make certain, she also rules in fashion.
