The latest Summer collection by Dolce and Gabbana is completely Maiolica inspired. Clothing, bags and accessories are beautifully transposed from design to fashion, the blue and white majolica motifs reminiscent of the summer sky and crystalline waters of the Mediterranean become glamorous statements. The pieces from the collection are quite beautiful.
For those of you who are curious, Maiolica is Italian tin-glazed pottery that has been around since the Renaissance. It usually consists of bright colors on a white background and the glaze gives it a pearlized appearance. In most of the designs, they depict scenes of legends or historical events.
Take a moment and discover the Dolce and Gabbana Maiolica Bag!
I will admit, I did see pottery when I first saw this bag. But when I look at this piece, I see a dinner plate. You know, like what you would see in a quaint little Italian restaurant. I think the Maiolica tile pattern is cute, don’t get me wrong. I like the blue and white combination. It has this whimsy about that is hard to describe. However, I am still on the fence about the shape. I like round, tambourine-style bags. But, the fact that this bag is round just makes it look more like a dinner plate to me. However, I suppose with the right outfit, this bag would be doable. It looks nice with the denim dress seen on the model.
There are many other styles to discover in the Dolce & Gabbana Maiolica collection! I listed two sites below that have a great selection-
The Dolce and Gabbana Maiolica is printed with a tonal-blue and white motif – it’s inspired by Italian Maiolica pottery.

The long-length strap means you can wear it cross-body, too. Retails for $1395
