Dolce & Gabbana Shows Some Skin

Miamians love nothing more than showing off tanned skin, the allure of baring sun-kissed limbs achieved through diligent hours spent both on the beach and in the gym. Maybe that’s why Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring/Summer collection is so appealing.
Alongside all those body-conscious sheaths and suits was an impressive group of flirty minidresses and shorts sets, most in breezy white, one in the label’s requisite leopard, and then this exquisite little look in black, which instantly sums up Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s ability to craft a modern ideal that also looks as though it stepped out of a fabulous moment in Italian cinema. Black on a South Beach afternoon might typically give us pause, but in this case? Just say noir.
