INSPIRATION the mosaics of Sicily's Cathedral of Monreale... Dolce&Gabbana FW 2013||14

Dolce&Gabbana has used the amazing Byzantine mosaics of Sicily's Cathedral of Monreale [left] as a very powerful inspiration for their FW 2013||14 collection [right] that embellish most of their outfits with countless individual artworks. In addition to the visual interpretation of the mosaics, that appear in form of prints and embroideries, the Italian design duo has chosen to use this amazing artistic work as a metaphor for craftsmanship and meticulous work.
