Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Piazza Pretoria, Palermo, Sicily,  2017.

In our web magazine www.eluxetv.com May 26th 2017 in a feature on Melania Trump wearing the Dolce Gabbana stand out Sicilian rose coat, we mentioned Giuseppe di Lampedusa’s cult novel “Il Gattopardo”, set in Palermo that Visconti made into an epic film, The Leopard, with a sensational performance by Burt Lancaster, and starring roles for French heart throb Alain Delon, and the beautiful Claudia Cardinale.

Dolce Gabbana’s Alta Moda collections are enthralling classic Sicilian inspired art. It brings back the perfume of the di Lampedusa story, opulence and Sicilian decadence, in D&G’s sexy low key,elaborate  “turn heads” casual style for today’s cool Jet setters. .

Sicily is famed too for its “Teatro dei Pupi” , costumed theatre……..

Palermo airport saw  150 private planes bringing in their top clients from around the World for a stunning show.

A Couture dress starts at £30.000, & by the next morning after the show most of the 116 outfits had, it seems, been sold. What a party those Girls must have had flashing the plastic, Dolce Gabbana have created an Event that overtakes “fashion”. It is participative “Art”.

“Chrysler” inspired icon.La Comete sculpture by Guirard-Riviere, Etling Foundry. See reference to the Chrysler building in New York.

La Comète

La Comète is a magnificent Art Deco sculptural image of a female nude modelled as a streamlined comet, her long hair trailing behind her as she flies through the clouds. The silvered bronze sculpture is heightened with parcel gilding and raised on a breche griotte shaped marble base, signed Guirard-Riviere and inscribed with the foundry mark Etling Paris. The sculpture’s composition displays a great sense of dynamism and movement.
This iconic design was considered the height of modernity and an example of the model was placed in the reception of the famous Chrysler Building, New York from 1930 to 1942.
See example with a green/brown patina which was sold at Sothebys, New York in 2014 for $ 60,000 USD
