Dolce & Gabbana are bringing their luxury line Alta Moda to Miami this year during Art Basel. D&G has been planning a Miami Takeover for the last two years. The Alta Moda collection blends classic and baroque with the help of talented artisans. When it comes to the Alta Moda collection, there is no better time to bring it to the U.S. than during Miami Art Week.
Dolce & Gabbana Represent Artistic Flair in the Fashion Industry
While the definition of art may change based on who you ask, most people agree that art should be unique, symbolic and representative of the human experience. For the last 10 years, the Alta Moda line has displayed luxury, glamor and artistry. Alta Moda is made up of handmade, original pieces that represent a luxurious lifestyle.
Fashion is an art form. It requires creativity and vision to create the reputation that D&G has in the world of fashion. Every part of the process, from the original designs to the pieces and those who wear them, is a form of art.
Miami’s Glamor Complements Dolce & Gabbana
Vogue highlights the fashion house’s appreciation for Latin culture. Dolce describes Latin culture as close to their world, so what better place to have a presence than Miami, Florida? Florida has the third-largest Latin American population in the U.S., with 40% of Miami residents speaking Spanish as a first language. The Sicilian influence of Alta Moda complements the Latin influences in Miami.
Additionally, Miami stands up as one of the most glamorous cities in the United States. Glamor in Miami began in the 1930s and grew into the 1960s. Hollywood stars and socialites used to gather in Miami long before Palm Beach became another hub for glamor and luxury. Nowadays, Miami Beach houses trendy clubs and upscale restaurants.
Alta Moda Upholds the Values of Art Basel
Every year, Art Basel brings work by contemporary masters to the U.S. Art Basel is a preview of emerging artists and talent worldwide. Some of the art may be inspired by classic and traditional art, but all of it has a modern spin. Dolce & Gabbana and Alta Moda uphold similar values. The 2022 line has classic Sicilian inspiration but still speaks to a modern audience.
According to Dezeen, Art Basel runs simultaneously with Design Miami during Miami Art Week. This year, Design Miami’s theme is The Golden Age: Looking to the Future. Alta Moda’s theme of the Sicilian woman draped in classic black and gold, with a contemporary spin, fits the theme elegantly. 2022’s Alta Moda uses baroque, classic and religious imagery. Some pieces could blend seamlessly into a backdrop of Sicilian architecture and sculpture.
