Dolce & Gabbana’s Opera House
It was the first time the Opera house had been given over fashion explained Alexander Pereira, Scala’s director.
From the emotion from its voice we could understand that he didn’t regret it. Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show was perfection. Years after years the Italian couturiers challenged the limits of perfection.
The show was a true moment of exception. It was all about the heritage of Italian couture, glorification of opulence and femininity. Opera was at the center of the presentation. “You’ll see both the singers and the audience in the collection” explained Domenico Dolce before the show.
The Puccini operas Tosca, Turandot, and Madame Butterfly, was the inspiration of the designers duet. And so the work of Elvira Leonardi Bouyeure, alias Biki, the renowned Milanese dressmaker, a lover of big hats, who fitted aristocratic women of the city with the finery they wore to the opera, as well as their wardrobes of neat day suits. Maria Callas was a customer—and Biki herself was a granddaughter of Puccini.
The emotion was so strong that we had tears in our eyes when the curtain closed, that is why we wanted to share it with you!
