Dolce & Gabbana meets the future: a triumphant look at a vibrant heritage and a tribute to a rich past equal a path to a transcendent present. Introducing the Evocative Beauty Collection… a seamless juxtaposition of signature elements reflecting luminousity, luxury and a cunning sensuality. Echoing the Fall 2010 runway collection’s eloquent celebration of Dolce & Gabbana’s superior quality, unerring craft, exceptional detail and provocative contrast, the Evocative Beauty Collection shares a deep emotional resonance, impeccable precision and a bold yet enigmatic beauty. “With the fall collection we drew from our culture, our tradition, to unleash the full power and evocative nature of modern femininity,” says Stefano Gabbana, “We wanted to discover a look that truly reflects our ‘story’ from the very beginning yet truly reflects our reverence for today’s women, epitomized, of course by the divine Scarlett.” We’ve always been about contrast on the runway-lacy lingerie against sharp tailoring, vivid florals punctuating matte black. With the Evocative Beauty Collection, the contrast is just as impassioned,” adds Domenico Dolce, “It addresses what’s so ineffable about a woman-her fierce sensuality anchored by her innermost femininity.”
The result: Sizzling contrast lends a smoldering sensuality that arouses and attracts. The deeply felt palette embodies the raw yet refined essence of Sicily’s past, the renegade glamour of its present: it is powerful and ephemeral, passionate and intimate. Pure muted tones against bright vibrant tones produce the brazen yet reflective beauty that is, and always has been Dolce & Gabbana’s alone.
The Evocative Beauty Collection presents a provocative palette that’s passionate-a range of warm browns and purples; a play of cool muted jewel-tones-blues, deep purples-and tender pinks and neutrals contrasted with bright pinks. Vivid hues lend a touch of the unexpected, a touch of the erotic, to coy nuanced tones; the look is sinfully seductive, deeply intimate… and radiates pure glamour and sensuality.
Cutting edge make up artist Pat McGrath collaborates with Dolce & Gabbana to produce another extraordinary look. Brilliant new shades join collection favorites to capture a new vitality, an enlightened beauty and a sleek sensuality.
The look captures the delicate yet capricious nature of autumn, the discreetly dramatic explosion of purples and neutrals always shifting, flickering and finally transforming to become something altogether new. Soulful and daring… the emphasis is on the lips-the key to a woman’s deepest sensuality-with eyes that are subtle yet deeply seductive, layered in soft nuanced neutrals and accented with bold intense colour. The lips are lush and voluptuous in Amethyst, a new classic cream lipstick, with a deep shimmering shine… and highlighted with a bit of flash through Amethyst, a glistening new gloss. Eyes are seductive in Evocative-a new eyeshadow duo in pink and brown-and Divine, a new eyeshadow quad flesh tones accented by deep purple. Softly articulated in the eyeliner Chocolate, the eyes are further enhanced with mascara in Black. Nail lacquer in Dahlia adds a finish of true glamour.
“We went all out with contrast, the kind of contrast that makes a real statement,” says Pat McGrath, “It’s really all about the lips-very shiny and dark, super sexy. I downplayed the eyes, which are still gorgeous, but it’s a subtle kind of power, very implicit. I was going for a look that is very much about ‘now’ but is also ultra Dolce & Gabbana, capturing their ultimate signature look for beauty. Very suggestive, mysteriousyet still very bold. To me, that’s what the fall is all about.”
