In my yesterday's post I mentioned the Italian regions of Tuscany and Umbria but today we are travelling to Milan for a sneak peek of the Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 Collection of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, which they presented at the Milan Fashion Week on Sunday.
This time their sources of inspiration were 12th century Venetian and Byzantine mosaics that cover the walls of the Santa Maria Nuova cathedral in Monreale, Sicily.
Think gold, black, red and white, mixed with lace, herringbone tweed, gemstones and tiaras.
