Portofino, the quaint Ligurian town founded by the Romans, with its cobbled streets, picturesque piazza and picture perfect scenery is set to welcome a Dolce&Gabbana pop up boutique for the month of July.
The historic art gallery just off the main square, as well as exhibiting local works of art, will exceptionally host an exclusive collection of apparel and accessories for both men and women inspired by the colours and charm of the Ligurian harbour town.
The limited edition collection for women is awash with colour and prints in typical Dolce&Gabbana style, but with reference to Portofino. Pencil skirts, tunics, mini dresses, as well as evening gowns in charmeuse, full skirts in twill and popeline sundresses, and also beachwear, all emblazoned with foulard prints which depict the scenery like a timeless post card, framed by pink hydrangea, and the deep blue of the Tugullio Gulf. To complement the collection there is a selection of accessories: maxi bags for the beach, mini bags for smartphones, brightly coloured espadrilles, sandals and precious jewellery.
The menswear collection is dedicated to a contemporary sailor who uses maritime maps of the Ligurian Sea printed on polo shirts, shirts, oversize t-shirts, shorts and trousers to navigate the undiscovered coves. Espadrilles and belts are striped white, red, blue, green, yellow like the beach umbrellas of Paraggi. To complete the collection, colourful loafers and sandals made of crocodile leather and lizard.
To complete the offering, the Pop up boutique will also feature the childrenswear collection.
The Dolce&Gabbana pop up boutique will be open from Friday July 3rd to Sunday August 2nd July 2015, in Piazza Martiri dell’Olivetta 7, Portofino (Genova).
