Olé: Dolce & Gabbana’s Doll Bags
For the Doll and Handbag Connoisseur
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's latest collection travels from the islands of Italy to the streets of Spain and back— illustrating Spanish influence on the designer duo's Italian heritage.
We first spotted these hand-painted dolls on Dolce & Gabbana's Spring '15 runway. They are designed to resemble souvenirs sold at Italian railway stations during the '50s and come encased in ornate printed boxes with handles. Amusingly, the models on the runway were dressed identical to the doll box-sets that they paraded as handbags.
The Immacolata (immaculate), the Concetta (conception) and the Addolorata (grieving) figurines are all limited edition pieces in a collection of 300 and styled to symbolise their names. Case in point: the Immacolata dolls are clothed in timeless black dresses and accessorised with 'Sicily' bags and gold rosary necklaces.
Vogue predicts this to be the next fashion collector's item for the stylish señorita.
The doll bags are priced at approx. $2,617.38 and are available to purchase here.
