Storied Italian House Dolce and Gabbana has launched its first collection of hijabs and abayas targeted to Muslim customers in the Middle East. Within mere days the news expanded globally and turn the world’s media into frenzy.
The abayas and hijabs come in sheer georgette and satin weave charmeuse fabrics and include copious lace details along hems. The collection comes in neutral hues—luxe black and sandy beige—while a sprinkling of abayas capture the Sicilian spirit of the house (and make a nod to the Spring 2016 collection) with printed daisies, lemons, and lush red roses. They also appear to feature a lightweight and dramatic drape, which makes this debut collection rife with special occasion overlays to be worn to celebrate the inimitable dolce vita that is distinct to us in the Arab world.
