Dolce & Gabbana Summer '10: Midnight Bloom

Dolce & Gabbana: The Midnight Bloom Collection for Summer 2010

Dolce & Gabbana take cues from its vivid past to transport the present and to determine the future. Introducing the Midnight Bloom Collection: modern dreams of beauty classics that surprise and seduce. Echoing the 2010 Spring/Summer runway collection, Midnight Bloom evokes the Sicilian heritage of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, highlighting the exquisite floral prints that embody the erotic eloquence of Sicily’s traditional wild roses and their delicate nuances. A renewed emphasis on the seductive flavor of the Mediterranean as Hollywood’s siren screen glamour momentarily steps aside. “Summer has such an intense duality. The intimacy and rapture of the night, and the joy of each new day. More specifically, we wanted to recreate the dramatic duality of the wild roses’ delicate shades against the Sicilian night’s daring shades of romance and mystery,” says Domenico Dolce, “There’s such an explosion of colour,” adds Stefano Gabbana, “with the wild roses carpeting the landscape against the drama of the seascape.” The result: a look that’s dreamy and enigmatic yet portrays a lucidity that captures the moment where summer’s shimmering daylight dims and the dark romance of its endless nights begin. Midnight Bloom explores the kaleidoscopic colour of Sicily with a select range of tones from blue greensechoing the vivid Mediterranean to intimate nudes, rich neutrals and delicate pinks shimmering softly with the tender grace of the wild roses. The look is a particularly sensual glamour that simmers softly yet definitively and sneaks up gradually yet powerfully.
