Hope Chest

About a month ago I spent an incredible weekend in the mountains celebrating the union of two friends. It was almost two weeks ago it seems that Domenico  Dolce and Stefano Gabbana did the same in their Spring 2011 RTW show in Milan. "The idea behind this quite lovely show, the designers explained backstage, was a hope chest. That is, the things new and handed down that a bride might pack before she sets off on the next chapter of her life."- Nicole Phelps
The emotional show was filled with little white dresses and a couple of black lacy numbers in between, with spurts of leopard (all cinched of course), pieces I consider to come from a treasure chest...
