The unique patterns of the Dolce & Gabbana Carretto Siciliano are transposed onto a summer-focused collection for sizzling Sicilian inspired looks.

The charming and unique patterns which characterise the typical Sicilian horse drawn cart (Carretto Siciliano) contaminate the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2016 collection with a portion dedicated entirely to this piece from the Italian island’s folk heritage.

Summer appropriate looks ranging from tunics to maxi dresses and crop tops passing by the quintessential summer staples; swimwear and oversize sunglasses are emblazoned with patterns representing the wheels of the carretto as well as the highly colourful baroque scrolls which are ubiquitous on the body of the carts.

The intricate patterns are reproduced on accessories too, with classics like the Sicily tote are printed with a representation of the Teatro dei Pupi, while the stunning Dolce Box, the new age minaudieres, are painted with colourful patterns: florals, scrolls and the typical Sicilian Puppet Theatre. The same care is paid to the footwear, with decorated flat sandals, wedges and unique sandals with a female figurine shaped heel and crystal embroidery. For the stylish traveller, the collection includes a trolley suitcase as well as shoppers.

The Dolce & Gabbana Siciliano Carretto Collection comprises highly decorative jewellery in golden metal with brightly coloured crystal gems and enamelled charms which represent the decorations on the Carretto as well as other symbols stemming from the Sicilian Folk Tradition.
