Dolce & Gabbana have presented their winter 2014 collections on the runways of Milan this past sunday.

This new collection shows a continuation of Sicilian inspiration from last season with an ode to the mosaics of Monreale, in Sicily and to the Italian culture.

Gold-encrusted dresses covered in imagery from the 6th-century Byzantine mosaics of the San Vitale basilica in Ravenna. Love the finale with models wearing vatican-red lace dresses enriched with embroideries and stones!

“The city of Monreale started to become important around the XI
century with the arrival of the Normans in Sicily. The Cathedral of
Monreale, consecrated to Santa Maria Nuova, was built between 1172 and
1185 under the commission of the Norman King William II of Altavilla,
together with the archiepiscopal Palace and its beautiful cloister. In
the top half of the walls a series of golden mosaics were created
between the end of 1100 and the middle of 1200. Two of these mosaics
represent William II crowned by Christ and William II who offers the
church to the Virgin. Local artists and experts from Byzantium and
Venice were called in to realize those striking works of art.”

They say "the devil is in the detail" in that case "the saint is the detail".

    Love the religious iconography on the fabrics. These are dresses I’d love to shoot.
