Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana has launched their first-ever collection of hijabs and abayas as they seek to cater for the growing demand for Muslim fashion.
The Dolce & Gabbana hijab and abaya collection, while engineered for modesty, has all the flair of any other Dolce & Gabbana collection and are styled alongside the label’s cocktail jewelry, oversize sunglasses, and patterned bags
The collection “celebrates the inimitable dolce vita that is distinct to us in the Arab world,” says the brand.
But it’s still distinctively Dolce & Gabbana’s aesthetic with a sprinkling of the daisies, lemons, and red roses that appear in the brands Spring 2016 collection, as well as a sprinkling of playful polka dots. The hijabs and abayas come in sheer georgette and satin weave charmeuse fabrics, and the brand’s signature lace detailing is also a strong presence. One floating neutral coloured abaya is heavily embellished with intricate black lace, echoing the brand’s penchant for dramatic femininity, while another is embellished with an all over lace pattern.
To Muslim women with a taste for luxury fashion, this collection is an exciting development.
