Italian fashion house Dolce and Gabbana are looking to the Islamic market by launching its first collection of headscarves and full-length robes for women.
The collection of hijabs and abayas were unveiled on website Style.com's Arabia homepage and feature a mixture of more modest, classic designs and flashes of print, lace and color.
Style.com's Managing Editor Caterina Minthe says the range uses "neutral hues—luxe black and sandy beige—while a sprinkling of abayas capture the Sicilian spirit of the house …with printed daisies, lemons and lush red roses."
"The abayas and hijabs come in sheer georgette and satin weave charmeuse fabrics and include copious lace details along hems. They also appear to feature a lightweight and dramatic drape, which makes this debut collection rife with special occasion overlays to be worn to celebrate the inimitable dolce vita that is distinct to us in the Arab world," Minthe continued.
