The Dolce & Gabbana SS15 collection showed yesterday at Milan Fashion Week.  The theme of the show was the Spanish influence in Sicily between the years 1516 and 1713.  

The female matador springs to mind, models wore matador jackets in red and black, with red roses in their buns.  Crop tops were worn with decorated shorts, and long, black, lacey dresses revealed the high waisted knickers and brassiers underneath.  We loved the sheer tank tops teamed with jewel and pearl encrusted jeans.

Watch the full collection in all its glory on the runway, below. (more…)
