Dolce & Gabbana The Romantic Collection for Fall 2009

Dolce & Gabbana The Romantic Collection for Fall 2009
Inspired by Surrealism, the Dolce & Gabbana A/W 09 runway collection echoes both revolutionary sensibility and rebellious spirit. Just as the Surrealists eschewed the conventional to embrace the unpredictable and explore the unimaginable, Dolce & Gabbana break the rules both on the runway and with a new collection of Make Up for fall, tracing the fine line between dreams and reality to create an innovative glamour that teases and provokes.

We worship the surrealists; they pushed the limits-and proved that anything is possible,” says Stefano Gabbana, “With the Romantic Collection, the idea is to break away from the expected to transform beauty, creating a look that is about ultimate fantasy.” “And the ultimate luxury,” adds Domenico Dolce, “After all, the ultimate luxury is to dream and, for the Dolce & Gabbana woman, the dream should always be a reality.”

The Romantic Collection showcases tone against tone contrast via a rich new range of pinks-from delicate to vibrant to shocking - with a fresh shimmer to lend natural luminosity. Lustrous new shades share a balance of the sensual and the subversive to embody Dolce & Gabbana signature glamour.

A key “Romantic” Look

Legendary make-up artist Pat McGrath collaborates closely with Dolce &
Gabbana to create the beauty look with select Make Up classics paired with
brilliant new shades. Explicit and ethereal pinks are imbued with light; deep
neutrals are refined and distinctive.

The look lends an air of romance
and a sense of intimacy with lucid washes of pure colour and sensuality. A truly
feminine aura that’s both suggestive and assertive; the look is exuberant with
weightless layering of tone against tone pinks, that coalesce in a seamless
elegance that is at once fresh and cool.

Moist, voluptuous lips beckon
and seduce - soft-sculpted and defined with Soft, a new shade of the classic lipstick and the lipliner. The same hue adds
sophistication to nails, through the new

The Romantic Collection is intimate yet ephemeral with
a glaze of pinks dissolving into a rush of strong femininity “
The Rose
palette brings the collection to a new level; Dolce & Gabbana wanted to take
risks with colour, texture, mood - and at the same time capture the essence of
each element
,” says Pat McGrath. “
While the focus is on the eyes - very
sexy, very daring - the soft voluptuous lips add an intensity that’s erotic. The
rose look is very romantic, almost ethereal - yet very sophisticated
