The Spanish Inquisition of Dolce and Gabbana's s/s 2015

Crimson red and polka dots reigned supreme in D&G's love letter to the Spanish rule of Scilly.

by 26 June 2014

The elegant melody of a classic Spanish guitar fills the air as models walk. Outfitted in crimson matador jackets, cropped trousers and even tops featuring images of bulls, they show off the Dolce & Gabbana Men's Collection for 2015. D&G uses Sicilian history to influence the collection, specifically the period of Spanish rule between 1576 and 1713.

The theme is vivid and unmistakable. Red is the colour of choice, seen steadily throughout the show. The flamboyant bravado of bullfighting is evident in the bold polka-dot pieces, shiny fabrics and gold accent jewellery. Matador ribboning is seen snaking across both tops and trousers, and suits are shown in an array of silky colours including green, blue, maroon and turquoise. To be certain, Dolce & Gabbana have gone for bold over subtle for their men's s/s 2015 collection.
