Dolce and Gabbana never disappoints, do they? Certainly not for me, and their spring/summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection is living proof! There’s something so Italian about the retro ’60s shapes they’ve chosen for this collection, including sexy bustiers with wide straps, tea-length dresses with bateau necklines, and fitted waistlines across the board.

Throw in a few fabulous textures like woven wicker, broderie anglais, tassels, (and is that rattan?!), and you’ve got the rich summer-in-Italy vibe that continues on and on in this seriously extensive collection.
