In the category 'old news that I came across and which left me wheezing with laughter', I present to you, the Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer collection of 2014, featuring the following:

The Greek Reporter had the following to say about it, which I will just quote verbatim as I know nothing about fashion and I am laughing too hard to even attempt to say something intelligent about this.

"The Italian luxury industry fashion house, Dolce&Gabbana, unearthed Greco-Roman history this season leaving people speechless with the presentation of their spring/summer collection 2014. Many people cried “Oh, no!” while watching Dolce&Gabbana’s new collection and especially the accessories that bear striking ancient Greek elements. The ancient Greek Ionic columns were introduced, dominating even the heels that strutted the runway.

This was a great aesthetic transition for the Italian luxury industry fashion house in the winter collection of which we enjoyed a strong Byzantine influence. Lithographs of sepia-hued, postcard-pretty crumbling columns, Greek temples and theaters printed over silk dresses. However, this time, the accessories may be shouting “I love Greece” while their aesthetic shout “I adore the kitsch.”

Gabbana described this new spring/summer collection as “an unconscious dream,” in the sense that the clothes depict a mixture of the real and the irrational which can only be found in dreams. “It’s a dream of Sicily,” said Stefano Gabbana. “Like taking a holiday to Syracuse or Taormina, attending Greek theater and then come home and dreaming about it.”

I know fashion is not supposed to be about the money, but I was dying to know what a pair of these will set you back for: 500 euros (about 600 dollars), which is a steal because they used to be 845 euros (1.015 dollars). Fashion, baby!

According to Vogue, the rest of the collection featured "Greek-monument tourist souvenir prints, belts emblazoned with emperor-head medallions, shoes with hilarious Greek-temple columns for heels, and at one point a gladiator girl dressed in a gold tunic constructed, Paco Rabanne–style, of faux Greco-Roman coins, who was walking on gold-and-rhinestone studded sandals."

Forgive me for giving this collection a pass.
