I adore Dolce & Gabbana. Vivid, happy colors, exuberant patterns of flowers, religious iconography, it’s traditional and exotic, classic and trendy, always beautiful. Crowns, they have fancy crowns even the most incestually conceived royal could proudly sport in his luxury attic.
Had I the money for these fabulous frocks I still couldn’t wear any of them because they don’t make my size. I’m not large, I’m just not tiny. Really tiny.
But the boys threw us chubby poors a bone. A pasta bone, at the low low price of 110 dollars. “Here chubby poors, enjoy a literal taste of the good life.”
And it is good. Working with Pastficio de Martino on a limited edition run of 5000 with 1000 being made available to the state, we can sup on greatness. The colorful tin is packed with five kinds of specialty shaped pasta, an apron, and a cheapish shopping tote that I wouldn’t trust to hold a single napkin.
Aside from the tote it is thoughtfully packaged from the stickers holding the Italian tile design paper to the finely printed insert detailing the new treasures. D&G has been pairing with Smeg appliances as well. They want to make the everyday life beautiful, special. Agree! It does come at a cost though and with luck this trend will be picked up by more conservatively priced companies. Even poors like beauty.
So a splurge was had and I finally attained a literal taste of Dolce & Gabbana. It is worth every penny.
