To impose the trend of this kind of lace- once consigned to the pieces of embroideries which decorated the household or bed linen of the grandmas- to name a few, Dolce&Gabbana and Prada (also Blumarine in the past spring summer collection).
Dolce&Gabbana doesn't betray the Sicilian identity of the brand, it gets quite stronger. Here macrame' covers entirely dresses, skirts and tops with 50s shapes, sometimes combined with light dresses with prints of vegetables, on the whole sensual and provocative in a fresh way. The declared inspiration is a cult movie - I posted about a year ago HERE - where Sofia Loren dances Mambo Italiano.
At Prada the use of macrame' is sophistication, made of appliques of little flowers of two tones over boxy coats, jackets and skirts. The aim is decorating clothes with a romantic effect. The colours are delicate, light blue, green, pink, salmon.
