Dolce & Gabbana Launches Hijabs and Abayas Collection

Dolce and Gabbana has launched a new collection of hijabs and abayas, adorned with the house’s signature floral prints and Sicilian embroideries.

Usually renowned for their flamboyant designs and feminine silhouettes, the new collection takes its inspiration from the Middle East for a more conservative range. The range consists of hijabs and abayas in neutral colors made from sheer and lightweight fabrics, such as sheer georgette and satin weave charmeuse.

Compromising the brand’s Sicilian heritage, a few of the pieces have lush lace details and feature prints from the Italian fashion label’s spring 2016 collection. The SS16 prints offer dramatic baroque patterns as well as rose, lemon, and daisy motifs.

The Middle Eastern luxury market is growing rapidly and this collection couldn’t have come at a better time. Dolce and Gabbana’s new line attracts the Middle Eastern luxury consumers while maintaining its spirited, Sicily-inspired aesthetic; think lace trimmings, bright floral details and vibrant lemon prints, daisies and polka dots.

With Dolce and Gabbana’s new collection and Tommy Hilfiger’s previous limited-edition women and little girls’ capsule collection for Ramadan and Eid; it’s not long until other luxury labels reveal their own series of high-end hijabs and abayas. We have already seen Oscar de la Renta and DKNY create new collections especially for the Middle Eastern consumer.
