Like an Italian journey through beauty and love, every garment is inspired by unique places and recalls memories of enchanting holidays this is Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria Menswear Collection July 2020.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana presented their latest Alta Moda and Alta Sartoria collections (the design duo’s answer to haute couture) in Milan yesterday.
Staged in the historic Palazzo Litta in Milan, this was the first time that the house has presented Alta Moda, for women, on the same runway as Alta Sartoria, for men, in a show that featured a staggering 60-plus looks. Never a house to do things by halves, this latest presentation was a homecoming in many ways.
After its recent PR disaster in China, which resulted in the cancellation of its much anticipated The Great Show in Shanghai, this was a return to familiar and friendly territory. But it was also a return to themes that are fundamental to the brands DNA: culture, life and the arts.
Grand stairways, spectacular frescoes and elegant details render Palazzo Dolce&Gabbana the ideal setting for the Alta Gioielleria, Alta Moda and Alta Sartoria exclusive events.

The Alta Gioielleria creations include a pink gold “DG7 Gems full pavé” watch and a detachable yellow and white gold brooch-pendant embellished with rhodolite garnets, rubies and diamonds. The look is enriched with rings in yellow and white gold that boast various precious stones.

Theatrical, beautiful and a celebration of Italian history, this was a journey through the house’s undisputed technical know-how, but also a showcase of the designers’ undimmed passion. Given their recent troubles, it was good to see the duo leave politics aside and get back to doing what they do best.
