We spent a year living in Veneto, Northern Italy shortly after graduating, and have loved it ever since. But after a holiday to Sicily’s heavenly capital Palermo, we were utterly hooked on it’s concentrated and unapologetic Mediterranean charm. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana clearly feel the same about their native Country, as it provides endless inspiration for their culturally rich Catwalk creations. In their S/S 14 RTW show, they concentrate on the early Greek influences to the Country as well as the era of the Roman Empire which was a key influence for our ‘Sicilia’ envelope design (http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/S2014RTW-DGABBANA). As were the stunning richly painted ceramics we photographed, and bought excessively on our visit- the correspondence set would make for lovely ‘al fresco’ wedding stationery, especially if you’re planning a romantic Sicilian honeymoon!
