The Vogue 'Alta Moda: Dolce & Gabbana Una Storia Italiana' is Chic

Drawing inspiration from the strong character of Italian women, the Vogue 'Alta Moda: Dolce & Gabbana' spread pays tribute to feminine icons.

Set at the ruins in Taormina, Sicily, this fashion story tells the tale of traditional Italian style. The exotic appeal is complete with gowns and show-stopping pieces from Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's Alta Moda Collection. Each piece is an elaborate ultra-luxury creation with a vast attention paid to detail. The collection was the first haute couture line for the legendary design duo, and it is evident that their inspiration doesn't ever stray too far from their Mediterranean home.

The spread is certainly an ode to the strengths of national beauties. It was styled by the sublime Giovanna Battaglia and the imagery was captured by Paolo Roversi.
