A beautiful Dolce & Gabbana peach rhinestone silk bias-cut slip dress and matching semi-sheer jacket dating back to their coveted 1995 spring/summer documented collection. As shown, the gorgeous Yasmeen Ghauri wears this ensemble down the runway. Dolce & Gabbana are considered the inventors of a Mediterranean style that draws its inspiration from women of Italian realism, sensual and austere like Anna Magnani, to whom they dedicated a collection whose key element was the 1940's slip. They are not looking for a retro copy; Dolce & Gabbana turned to the past for innovation. The designers once stated, "We want to use the past to project it into the future". This gorgeous set is a wonderful example of their genius. The mix of fabrics is sensational; a luxurious silk satin bias-cut that hugs the body perfectly paired with a romantic semi-sheer asymmetric hemline chiffon jacket. Such a nod to 1930's fashion! I love the ruffle collar and belt for an extra hourglass look. The sparkling rhinestone trim on both the dress and jacket add an extra Old Hollywood glamour vibe. The pictures say it all!
