Dolce & Gabbana’s in depth and vibrant “Casa” collection has discovered a residence of its very own.
This 7 days, the storied Italian fashion dwelling just introduced the opening of not just one, but two, shops in Milan solely committed to their home decor line. Why two, you check with? Some prospects, they figured, are browsing for a thing statement-creating, like manufactured-to-purchase couches and coffee tables. Other people may want accents, textiles, or ceramics to accent their areas. By splitting up the large ticket products and the smaller sized types, they believe they are improved in a position to curate for individual interests and ages. “We preferred two distinctive stores, every single committed to certain solution classes, but at the similar time complementary,” Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana explain to Vogue. “The boutique in Corso Venezia 7 houses accouterments—twill and duchesse cushions, printed quilts, mouth-blown Murano glassware and Sicilian ceramic plates for an impeccable mise en place, scented candles and lacquered wood extras. The furnishings—from the significant cloth sofas to the lacquered oak tables and the accessorized bar furniture—are readily available in By means of Durini 23.”
The shops are unafraid of building a statement. Each of Casa’s four signature prints—Mediterranean Blue, Zebra, Leo (or, leopard) and Carretto—gets its very own focused region where it’s shown off on all the things from upholstery to rugs and ceramics. The displays are framed by simple backgrounds—an intentional option: Dolce and Gabbana decided to maintain their stores’ interiors neutral so their unique patterns could consider heart stage. “The volumes and spaces are up to date and linear the neutrality of white, black and grey make the creative imagination of the selection a protagonist,” they explain. “[With the collection] we centered on the Italian fatto a mano: the little sew, the woven straw, the mosaics, the hand-painted ceramics. But also the lacquering, the foundation of almost all the furniture, and the brass processing—incredible expertise connected to a know-how.”
