In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Italian fashion shows were the most anticipated of the season. Italian fashion was fun, sexy, irreverent, cerebral, architectural and romantic. Whether you dreamed of being one of Versace's rock and roll babes or a dreamy, ethereal Edwardian via Romeo Gigli or maybe a Tom Ford for Gucci girl, you simply knew that Italy was fashion heaven.
At one point or another, I dreamt of being all those women but the woman I most craved being was the one that Dolce e Gabbana created. There was no one sexier and more mysterious then Marpessa who modeled for them. Whether it was a sultry black corset or one of the colorful embroidered long dresses with matching fur trimmed coats, I desperately wanted it all.
The China collection of 1992 was wild and full of color and print. We are pleased to be able to offer this incredible silk shirt from the China collection that is a little bit Versace, a little bit Hermes but all Dolce e Gabbana. We would wear this top with our favorite skinny leather leggings with a pair of high, high heels or a little bootie.
