Initial reaction: 

Jupiter and Juno's house party in Sicily during springtime.

References:

Roman temple ruins, the pantheon of gods, Federico Fellini films

Stand out looks:

Roman coins and mirrored embroidery jangling and shimmering on short tunics.

Accessories:

Gold glorious gold everywhere in the coin headbands, earrings, gladiator sandals and painted carved wedges depicting Roman gods on the back of the heel.

Most likely to:

Give spring a jolt with all the cherry blossom embroidery and Roman coins dangling everywhere.

Least likely to:

Be seen without a trace of gold. Dolce and Gabbana's Sicilian bling doesn't seem to waver.

Model behaviour:

Kasia Struss closed the show.

Invite:

A postcard from Stefano and Domenico depicting a temple and cherry blossoms in a linen bag.

Soundtrack:

Yet another track that makes us wish we were quaffing Aperol spritzers somewhere in Italy...Spiando di Bagno by Nina Rota.

Left us wanting:

A tour through the temples of Southern Italy and a Fellini weekend marathon.
