Dolce & Gabbana And Fiasconaro Celebrate The Panettone With Festive Collaboration

Where creativity meets confectionery artistry.

Created from a unique recipe, the typical Milanese panettone is revisited with flavours of Sicily. The shared ingredients of this extraordinary union between North and South are respected for tradition, the courage to experiment, the quest for perfection and the pursuit of beauty. Above all, it is a love for artisanal production, entirely ‘Made in Italy’, that brings together the highest expressions of fashion and pastry.

Introduced to Europe many centuries ago by the Arabs, pistachios, saffron and citrus fruits found such fertile land in Sicily that they have been nicknamed, respectively, ‘green gold,’ ‘red gold’ and ‘golden apples.’.

The impeccable craftsmanship of these desserts is preserved thanks to the beautiful tin boxes, designed expressly by the most famous Sicilian artisans: the
bright colours and the subjects, inspired by the decorative motifs of the Sicilian cart and the characters of the puppet theatre, render these precious containers eminently collectible. The 1 kg panettone is encased in a tin tray, decorated according to the special creativity of the project, available only in selected stores.

A natural leavening not only ensures unparalleled lightness and fragrance to the panettone, but also exalts all of the raw materials. With these extraordinary panettones, the style of Dolce&Gabbana and the pastry art of Fiasconaro tell a uniquely Italian story of excellence, knowledge, and love for quality food.

In the coming months, this magical combination of style and flavour will delight even the most demanding gourmands with two original creations: a 1 kg Sicilian Pistachio panettone covered in white chocolate, with a velvety Pistachio cream in a special jar; and a panettone with Sicilian Citrus fruits and Saffron, available in both 1 kg and 100 g sizes.

The products will be sold at Martini Bar in Milan, online at www.dolcegabbana.it and in selected stores in Italy and worldwide.

1. JOY by Dior ($115, 30ml)

This fragrance encompasses all aspects of the Dior soul: femininity, luxury and pleasure. It’s been a long 20-years to the launch of this new fragrance, and we can definitely say this was worth the wait.

Experience instant jubilation from bergamot, mandarin and rose blossoms fused with juicy fruit notes, caressed by a delightfully smooth and milky wood, with an impeccable encounter of evanescent musks to envelop the scent in powdery freshness.

Simple and luminous, the femininity of the new iconic line of Dior bottles shines through in the brilliant silver and radiant pink of this instantly attractive juice. A bright shining silver thread wraps around the lid, like a light jewel delicately engraved with its name, which curls around in perfection.

Available at all major departmental stores and Dior counters.

It’s the first Monday of May. Well, technically a Tuesday here in Singapore. But it is a Monday in New York City, where industry key players, revered style figures and gleaming high-profile celebrities had gathered together at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the 2018 Met Gala –  arguably the important fashion event of the year.

As with the previous editions, the theme of this year’s Met Gala was revealed well before the event. For the first time, the glitzy event treads on the sensitive line of religion, calling it Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, that comes complete with a Vatican-approved exhibition.

And of course, in true ‘look-at-me’ fashion, guests showed up in their Sunday best. We’re talking outrageous gowns with trailing trains, chainmail ensembles, and dramatic halo headpieces. We rounded up the some of the most over-the-top costumes that you may have missed out at the star-studded event.

Rihanna in Maison Margiela 

It’s the pope! No wait, it’s just superstar Rihana in an intricately bejeweled number. We were almost convinced she was His Holiness, if not for the robe’s hem that stopped beyond mid-thighs to reveal her bronzy legs.
