Dolce & Gabbana’s Devotion Bag

When Dolce & Gabbana sent their new “It Bag”  down the Fall/Winter 18 runway during Milan Fashion Week on a drone, the fashion world was awestruck. What an intelligent way this was to create buzz, and within minutes a social media frenzy ensued, and every fashion follower’s timelines included snapshots of the bag in flight. The designers referred to the drones as “mechanical angels”, which aided the delivery of the most luxurious apparition ever seen on the catwalk.

And, now that the Fall/Winter season is right around the corner, we’ve finally learnt her name: Devotion. Why “devotion”? Devotion to fo fashion, design, style, craftsmanship, and innovation is the driving force for founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.

Devotion is love, limitless and unconditional. It goes beyond the boundaries of time and space. It lasts forever

The latest Devotion bag, therefore is symbolic of all these values. Devotion is committment dedication. In short, devotion is “heart” – and this is why the golden micro forged brass and copper  sacro cuore (“sacred heart”), forms the centrepiece of this bag. Adorned with tiny pearls, and with the DG logo at its centre, and a garland of leaves surrounding it, this heart isn’t purely decorative because it’s actually the bag’s clasp.

The bag is available in 3 colours (red, black, or white) and 5 models (top handle, shoulder bag, crossbody, mini, envelope style) in either quilted nappa or smooth calfskin.
