Dolce & Gabbana’s Alta Moda Collection SS 2016

It was couture on an operatic scale—literally.Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana took over the stage of La Scala Milan for a show about the heritage of Italian couture, and of their home city in particular, an exercise that soared like an aria to opulence, femininity, and the glorification of making excellent clothes. They found the threads of their narrative in two sources: one, the Puccini operasTosca, Turandot, and Madame Butterfly, and the other, the work of the Milanese dressmaker Biki, a lover of big hats, who fitted aristocratic women of the city with the finery they wore to the opera, as well as their wardrobes of neat day suits.
