Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012: Petit Point Embroidery

Image

One of my favorite things in the world are florals.  They evoke happiness and embody femininity at its best.  Blooms of all kinds are showing up on the runways this season, and some of the best I’ve seen were at the Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show! Inspired by Baroque Sicilian decorative tapestries, the petit point embroidered floral pieces in this collection were fantastic! The dresses, the shoes, the handbags…all beautiful replications of classic antiquities brought back to life as only D&G can.

I bought a purse over 10 years ago from a flea market with floral petit point embroidery on it from the 1940’s and I have treasured it to this day. Perhaps its time to take her out of hibernation and let her take center stage in my Spring handbag rotation?

I think Stefano and Domenico would approve, no? Check it out below!
