Lunar New Year Collection

Citrus fruit and fiery reds

A special collection inspired by the Lunar New Year celebrations where Dolce&Gabbana’s DNA and the traditions of the East merge in seamless fashion.

The 19th February 2016 is the beginning of the Lunar Year of the Monkey, and Dolce&Gabbana have created a special collection to mark the occasion. The collection merges Chinese traditions with classic Italian imagery and the brand’s signature silhouettes and ironic luxury.

The collection comprises elegant looks and casual separates dominated by festive red and yellow and orange prints. The prints depict oranges and lemons, which are heavy with symbolism. These two fruits are not only typical produce of Sicily, but also auspicious symbols during the New Year celebrations in Asia. Eating and displaying tangerines and oranges is believed to bring good luck and fortune due to their pronunciation, and even the way they are written. The Chinese for orange (and tangerine) is 橙 (chéng /chnng/), which sounds the same as the Chinese for ‘success’ (成). One of the ways of writing tangerine (桔 jú /jyoo/) contains the Chinese character for luck (吉 jí /jee/).

The collection is awash with colour fit for the festive season while the looks on offer vary from casual to evening. Pretty form enhancing sun-dresses with flared skirts are contrasted by the classic figure-hugging shifts in printed charmeuse or playful baby doll styles. Brocade printed suits undercut the collection while silk tunics or bomber jackets are styled with denim for a casual yet luxurious style. For the more rigorous fashionista, elegant block colour red dresses in shapes associated with the Dolce&Gabbana DNA can be spiced up with the wide range of printed accessories which complete the collection.

Mini Von bags, and classic Sicily totes are printed with succulent citrus fruits as are foulards to complete the look. Small leather goods like iphone cases and wallets are a festive way to spice up everyday items. Platforms, elegant pumps and the must have espadrilles are also emblazoned with the citrus print.
