Dolce and Gabbana
Either the Dolce and Gabbana or D&G collection are in my favourites almost every season, and AW12 is no exception. I love the "opulent goth" aesthetic of the collection and the sumptuous velvets, silks and tapestry fabrics used. I'm not normally one for really fussy clothing, but I love the over-embellished look of the baroque patterns paired with layers of lace and the gold and pearl accents. I'm definitely hankering after tapestry textures and gold and black baroque patterns now!
Key pieces wishlist
Painting dress - This dress from Romwe is the only "renaissance painting" item I've seen online/on the highstreet. It would look great with a baroque print or tapestry skirt over the top.
Tapestry bag - This bag (from eBay) is really cute and under £20, so a cheap way of buying into what could be a short-lived trend.
Flocked baroque shirt - I love oversized shirts, and this Motel one is perfect for the new season! I really like the combination of the sheer fabric and the flocked details.
Coin necklace - This River Island coin necklace reminds me of the huge earrings the models wore in the Dolce and Gabbana show, which I really like the look of, but I personally don't wear big earrings, and this necklace would be more practical for day to day wear anyway.
