Dolce & Gabbana’s newest collection may have been inspired by Sicilian gardens, but from where I’m sitting today, I’m getting more of an overcast San Francisco vibe. The release contains more gray than I expected (see it in the eyeshadow palettes and nail polish?). Not that I mind, of course.
It reminds me of when I used to live in the city and go jogging in Golden Gate Park. There’s a beautiful rose garden there, and I’d try to raise my body temp on the way to it so I could stop and stare at the pretty flowers for a bit before the cold set in. The roses looked so rich against the gray sky, and no matter what I might have been struggling with at that time in my life, the roses always cheered me up.
Anywho, maybe that’s what Dolce & Gabbana was going for with the Secret Garden collection for spring — gray skies, so to speak, and how it contrasts with the pinks, violets and greens for eyes, cheeks, lips and nails.
The product photos below show the 10 new pieces in the release. There are also two repromotes, Luminous Cheek Colour in Delight ($44) and Volumized Lashes in Black ($29), which aren’t shown (here they are).
