Always inspired by the beauty of Sicily, Dolce & Gabbana paid an homage to the Mediterranean isle this weekend. After couture shows in Portofino and Naples for the two seasons prior, the luxury house — helmed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana — had chosen Palermo this year to present its most prestigious collections, as part of its “Alte artigianalità” (High Craftsmanship) initiative. The four-day event was punctuated by a series of high-end jewellery presentations, backed up by fine dining at night for show guests. In the north of the city, nestled in the little port of Tonnara Florio, a pop-up store, and a bar and terrace have also been installed to mark the occasion. “It’s a collection dedicated to Palermo. And the event has been organised as a way to get to know Sicily and Italy,” the pair explained to local media.
