WE ARE STILL catching up on the couture collections, but this one in particular has been in our thoughts, as all of these beautiful images came floating by through our instagram feed, from Anna Dello Russo‘s account to be exact . . .

This year, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce invited 200 clients and press CAPRI to view the latest Alta Moda collection, an ode to Italy. Guests, who requested to dress in the style of La Dolce Vita, were ferried on small boats to a bougainvillea-lined beach to view the collection on striped deck chairs and satin ottomans. In this cove between the Faraglioni rocks of Capri, the striped ballgowns with velvet bodices floated by.

The editor-at-large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan’s photos, above, many of herself and W Magazine’s Contributing Fashion Editor, Giovanna Battagliaencapsulate the mood of the evening, which was precisely, la dolce vita . . .
