Dolce&Gabbana travels back in time for spring/summer 2011 collection

Kylie Minogue, Jada Pinkett Smith and her budding fashionista daughter Willow Smith attend Dolce&Gabbana's bed linen-and tablecloth-inspired fashion show in Milan.

MILAN, ITALY (SEPTEMBER 26, 2010) REUTERS - Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana looked into Sicilian traditional wardrobes for their spring/summer 2011 womenswear collection, presented in Milan on Sunday (September 26).
The show was attended by D&G muse Kylie Minogue and actress Jada Pinkett Smith who brought along her and actor Will Smith's nine-year-old budding fashionista daughter Willow.

The collection turned around the theme of a relaxed, sensual elegance, developed with the use of finely worked bed linens, bedspreads, towels and tablecloths.

Short or long white lace dresses in jersey highlighted Southern Italy's best tailoring tradition.

White dresses in chiffon, silk, poplin, organza and extra light linen were twinned with sandals with wooden heels and soles ornate with raffia and macrame flowers, diamond and chains.

Some models had padded shoulders or touches of black, leopard print and flowers to add sensuality.

Miss Sicily bags, a must-have for Dolce&Gabbana lovers, accessorised the timeless collection.
