Just in! Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 1996 Fellini Le Notti di Cabiria Collection Coat

If you read the RARE vintage blog frequently, you will know how much I love early Dolce & Gabbana.  Their collections always have so much story, romance and Drama.  Back in the 1990s, I dreamt of being a hot Sicilian widow bound in black corsets, wearing a baroque cross, with the grittiness of Italian neorealism cinema but also the glamour of the Dolce Vita.  That is what I love about fashion: stories and dreams...

"I was cutting the coats like Balenciaga in the Fifties, loose volume, three quarter length sleeves.  We were inspired by this amazing movie still from Fellini of a woman in a herringbone coat, getting into a car.  All you see is her back, and a flash of of black-seamed stockings as she climbs in."
Domenico Dolce on the Fall/Winter 1996/7 collection inspired by Balenciaga, Fellini and Le Notti di Carbiria...

Just in!
