Dolce&Gabbana’s “light therapy” collection celebrates life

MILAN (AP) — Dolce & Gabbana are coaxing men off their sofas and back into the world, however it will be, with a resplendent collection inspired by the extravagant lighting installations that characterize southern Italian street festivals. Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana called their collection “light therapy” for a world that has been mostly denied large gatherings for the last 15 months.  Their live runway show Saturday with a socially distanced audience of invited guests was the first inside their showroom since the pandemic forced Milan Fashion Week to go mostly digital in recent seasons. Dolce said “Our message is to live life. Don’t be afraid!”
