Continuing with combining modern trends and traditional Sicilian themes, Dolce and Gabbana adorned their models with golden coins for accessories, combined with prints of ancient crumbling columns or delicate floral work. The flowing and flared outfits reflect a style D&G have channeled for several seasons, yet decorated with historic currencies, it has fast become a key trend of S/S 14.
Not that I have yet seen anyone wear a large coin in the form of a belt, D & G also displayed coins as prints on clothing, hair pieces and on decadent hoop earrings. Which, the high street has translated coins also into dainty necklaces and bracelets, allowing us to create our own little treasure box of coins.
