Dolce & Gabbana heats up the Mid-Winter Gala

A large dose of la dolce vita recently landed at the Legion of Honor when famed fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers. designer Domenico Dolce alighted there for the Fine Arts Museums’ Mid-Winter Gala.

Hosted by the museums’ Junior Committee, this 13th annual fete drew a legion of tech titans, celebrities and local swans who flocked to the Beaux Arts beauty draped in a catwalk’s worth of dazzling Dolce & Gabbana ensembles.

Over the years, as these “juniors” became, well, “juniorish,” this dinner-dance has developed into one of the hautest West Coast happenings.

So this year, D&G, the luxe Italian label that recently opened its opulent Union Square boutique, signed on as the party’s presenting sponsor.

That fact encouraged FAM President Dede Wilsey, drawn by Dolce’s gala presence, to finally attend this “kids’ party” — a Mid-Winter fashion first.

From the glamorous rococo-style tableaux set on the Thinker’s Courtyard beneath a crimson-swagged tent — with glittering crystal chandeliers, candelabra centerpieces wrapped in bountiful red Claire Marie blooms, a delizioso four-course Italian-inspired dinner by the crack McCall’s crew — it was evident that the fashion house knows from presentazione. A rollicking post-dinner dance party followed with DJ Nikki Pennie, who rocked the D&G theme in a knockout gown and blinged-out headphones.

“San Francisco is a very important city, famous to Europeans for its elegance,” explained Dolce. “Today it’s a city for the new generation. All the technology, all the innovation, is in San Francisco.”

Dreamed up by honorary co-chairs Trevor Traina and Vanessa Getty with co-chairs Kathryn Lasater and Allison Speer, this peacocks’ parade also raises funds for FAM’s exhibition and education programs. And a luxe Christie’s-led auction (including two tickets snapped up for $26K to the brandA brand (or marque for car model) is a name, term, design, symbol or other feature that distinguishes one seller’s product from those of others.[2] Brands are used in business, marketing, and advertising.

“We established this party so all of you could enjoy a great time in our museums. To have so many treasures on view at the Legion and de Young is really extraordinary,” toasted FAM trustee and Ifonly.com founder Traina. “That we can take our kids to see a Rembrandt, a Rubens, a Monet or a Rodin in our backyard, without traveling to Europe, is a privilege we don’t take lightly.”

But getting this glittering gang to actually take their dinner seats and bid was no mean feat — the buzz during cocktails in the Rodin Galleries boomed amid a sartorial scrum sashaying with sexy Dolce & Gabanna trains, tulle, lace and tiaras.

Dolce & Gabbana’s $34,000 Fridge Is Truly a Work of Art

We thought no fridge could top the exquisite beauty that was Real Housewife Yolanda Hadid’s clear refrigerator, but Dolce & Gabbana may have managed to pull it off. The designers teamed up with fellow Italian company Smeg — the company that makes the adorable fridges owned by your favorite home design bloggers — for special edition “Fab 28″ Smeg refrigerators styled by Dolce & Gabbana.

Only 100 one-of-a-kind D&G x Smeg fridges have been produced, and each fridge features incredibly intricate images by Sicilian artists. The fridges are covered with floral motifs, lemons, medieval knights, and battle scenes. Even the top of each fridge is painted, so presumably the owners of the fridges won’t store random half-empty cereal boxes there.

The first examples of this special refrigerator collection will debut on April 13th during Milan’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2016. After the Salone Internzaionale, the refrigerators will be available for purchase via Dolce & Gabbana e-commerce or by contacting Smeg directly.

Owners of D&G Deli and Grill happily left snowy Detroit for sunny Downtown Jacksonville

Another example of how weather can change lives is the story behind why Mediterranean cuisine is being served at the Blackstone Building Downtown.
Gilbert Rexhepi and Daniel Isa celebrated the one-year anniversary of their D&G Deli and Grill in March after relocating from Detroit, where they ran a 180-seat, full-service restaurant and cocktail lounge.

“We didn’t want to have to shovel snow any more,” said Isa.

The Albanian immigrants decided to leave Detroit and head to Florida. The brothers and business partners came to Jacksonville in January 2015 to visit friends.

While they were here, they decided to look for an opportunity and discovered the sandwich shop on the ground floor at the Blackstone Building was for saleA sale is the exchange of a commodity or money as the price of a good or a service.[1] Sales (plural only) is activity related to selling or the amount of sold goods or services in a given time period..

It was a way to not only leave behind their snow shovels, but a way to adopt a new work routine as well.

Serving breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday is a far cry from serving dinner and closing a lounge after midnight seven days a week

“We wanted a change in lifestyle. In Detroit, we were going to work at 4 p.m. every day and we were there until after the bar closed. Now, we’re done by 4 p.m.,” said Rexhepi.

The new owners got a change in their work schedule and people looking for something to eat got a new menu of appetizers, entrees, sandwiches and salads.

They enhanced the traditional Downtown sandwich shop selection that had been served in the space for decades with restaurant-style Greek specialties.

They kept the burgers and tuna melt, but bumped up the menu with hummus, chicken wings, lamb gyro, stir fry, kebabs, specialty salads and smoothies.

Commercial deli meats were replaced by fresh corned beef, ham and turkey roasted in the kitchen behind the counter.

Rexhepi visits the Jacksonville Farmers Market on West Beaver Street each morning to pick up vegetables and also fruits for the grill’s juice bar.

“Everything we serve is fresh, homemade, local — and organic whenever possible,” he said.

One of the most popular items they introduced is the D&G pita: a BLT plus fried chicken breast wrapped in flatbread.

Sides include chips, fries, salad or homemade soup.

After 12 months in businessA business, also known as an enterprise or a firm, is an organization involved in the trade of goods, services, or both to consumers., they’ve become a part of the neighborhood and their decision to buy the sandwich shop is validated.

“We wanted to be Downtown where there are a lot of office workers,” said Rexhepi. “We have made a lot of friends.”

Plans for the second year include adding more healthy-choice sandwiches and entrees, with an eye toward expanding the business.

“We’re thinking about looking for a second location,” Isa said, possibly near the Duval County Courthouse and Hemming Park.

D&G Deli and Grill, located at 233 E. Bay St., is open 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday and weekends during events.

D&G Carretto eyewear inspired by Sicilian home

Luxottica and Dolce&Gabbana are launching a Sicilian-inspired eyewear collection, which will be available in travel retail locations from AprilApril is the fourth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar, the fifth in the early Julian and one of four months with a length of 30 days., with an initial focus on Europe and the Middle East.

The Dolce&Gabbana Sicilian Carretto Eyewear Collection is said to be a tribute to a ‘marvel of craftsmanship’. “ ‘The exploits of cavaliers and deeds of medieval knights and ladies performed in marionette theatres are also painted onto traditional Sicilian carts, a symbol of Sicily’s artistic craftsmanship made world famous for its dazzling colours and intricate decorations,” says Luxottica.

As well as the coloursColor (American English) or colour (Commonwealth English) is the visual perceptual property corresponding in humans to the categories called red, blue, yellow, etc. and motifs, the collection also features the same decorative techniques used by the master craftsmen who once worked with the carts.

Dolce & Gabbana’s Embellished Hijabs and Abayas Are Great News for Muslim Women—When Will Other Brands Follow Suit?

News broke that Dolce & Gabbana is producing a collection of hijabs and abayas targeted to Muslim customers in the Middle East. The garments, while engineered for modesty, have all the flair of any other Dolce & Gabbana collection—a little jewel-encrusted lemon here, some black lace trim there—and are styled alongside the label’s cocktail jewelry, oversize sunglasses, and patterned bags in a lookbook shoot. To Muslim women with a taste for luxury fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers., this collection is an exciting development.

he line will likely prove good news for D&G’s 2016 revenue as well. According to a report by Thomson Reuters, Muslim shoppers spent $266 billion on clothing and footwear in 2013 and are expected to spend $484 billion by 2019. Following similar booms in the Chinese, Japanese, and other Asian markets in the late aughts and early ’10s, high fashion brands revamped their accessories strategies to appeal to the shopping habits of an Asian clientele. That meant a flood of miniature bags and stylized phone cases that was soon followed by many Asian-inspired collections and destination shows. The benefits of those decisions are still seen today: A handbag designer recently told me her miniature purses, sized so small as to only fit an iPhone, were still her top sellers in Japan. So why aren’t more Western houses creating collections for the Middle Eastern market?

In recent years, such brands as DKNY, Oscar de la Renta, Tommy Hilfiger, Mango, and Monique Lhuillier have produced one-off collections, often sold around Ramadan, but stats prove the Muslim market is keen for luxury goods all-year-round. Runway fashion, meanwhile, is veering dramatically in the opposite direction, with bare-chested models becoming the norm on the catwalks. Even so, it would be smart for designers to pepper their upcoming Fall 2016 catwalks with a selection of more modest options for Muslim customers among their transparent trousersTrousers (pants in North America and Australia) are an item of clothing worn from the waist to the ankles, covering both legs separately (rather than with cloth extending across both legs as in robes, skirts, and dresses). In the UK the word “pants” generally means underwear and not trousers.[1] Shorts are similar to trousers, but with legs that come down only to around the area of the knee, higher or lower depending on the style of the garment. To distinguish them from shorts, trousers may be called “long trousers” in certain contexts such as school uniform, where tailored shorts may be called “short trousers”, especially in the UK. and sheer blouses. You’ll have to check back during our coverage this February to see if that happens.
