Shop the runway with Fellows Auctions. Lot 161 is a stunning shoulder clutch by Dolce & Gabbana.
From the Spring/Summer 2015 shows, the Cuore Di Mamma is a piece of wearable art.
The “sacro cuore”, or sacred heart, symbolism has always been an iconic part of Dolce & Gabbana’s heritage. Clothes, sunglasses, bags and even the packaging of the brand’s make up have sported the symbolism. In this instance, the heart is the entire object.
The Dolce & Gabbana Collection
The theme was motherhood. This bag is an ode to a mother’s love and it is even inscribed with “mama sei unica”, Mama you are unique.
The collection was a step back in time when Sicily (their usual source of inspiration) was owned by Spain. Moreover, it was full of rich reds, polka dots and matador inspired clothing.
The red roses seen in the handbag was also a strong theme at the shows. Furthermore, they were also seen in hairpieces, shoes and other handbags. The sacred heart appeared in other forms as embellishments on clothing, belts, bags and shoes.
The bag can be used as a clutch or as a shoulder bag with a leather strap (not included in Lot 161).
