The haute couture season culminated with a bang (literally) on Sunday night in Naples. The last night of Dolce and Gabbana’s four-day Alta Moda festival (jewelry Thursday, Alta Moda couture for Friday, and Alta Sartoria men’s tailoring on Saturday) was topped off with a brilliant fireworks display over the bay of Naples.

Friday night was the highlight of the festival, with their Alta Moda Couture presentation staged on the street in the very heart of Naples, with none other than Italian screen Goddess Sophia Loren installed on her very own throne. Their muses were Sophia herself and the streets of Naples. As Gabanna professed at one of the post-show dinners, “My heart is in the street. I prefer to go there rather than to the gala.” The collection contained classic, yet sexy, silhouettes, and plenty of references to Catholicism, folk art, Baroque architecture, and food.

The lines were all about shape, the a-line vs. the curve. There were balconette necklines and curvaceous pencil skirts; sexy dresses with swishing hems; black fitted suiting and coats; richly gilded bolero jackets and lace confections worthy of any royal wedding gown, bejeweled capes and dresses along with dazzling sequined dresses. The duo even admitted to lifting a look or two from Ms. Loren’s movies.
