Introducing the Midnight Bloom Collection for Summer 2010: profound glamour, languid sophistication and cunning romance. A celebration of Dolce & Gabbana’s singular sensibility inspired as always by their cherished Sicily: its glorious past and the dramatic duality of its intriguing present. With Midnight Bloom, Dolce & Gabbana honor their vibrant heritage with signature brilliance and sultry sensuality. The collection is expressly created for the Dolce & Gabbana woman who flaunts her femininity; who trusts in serendipity; who relishes a luxury that’s effortless; who emboldens reality with a touch of fantasy… and celebrates who she is, inside and out.
The Make Up defies the conventional and celebrates the power of today’s femininity… the look is bold and unexpected, yet softly sensual and seductive.
In collaboration with superstar makeup artist, Pat McGrath, here are the details for the Midnight Bloom Collection (available now at saks.com).
“Summer is when you need to focus on a very natural, seriously sensual beauty. With this collection, we also wanted to add some frisson, capture the dark side, so to speak; create a mood, a look that captures a late summer night’s magic,” says Pat McGrath. “It had to be all about the eyes; with these vivid blues and greens, the eyes are so deep-the ultimate sexy, extremely erotic-especially against the almost imperceptible yet radiant wild rose tones of the lips and the skin.”

Midnight Bloom evokes the Sicilian heritage of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, highlighting the exquisite floral prints that embody the erotic eloquence of Sicily’s traditional wild roses and their delicate nuances. A renewed emphasis on the seductive flavor of the Mediterranean as Hollywood’s siren screen glamour momentarily steps aside. “Summer has such an intense duality. The intimacy and rapture of the night, and the joy of each new day. More specifically, we wanted to recreate the dramatic duality of the wild roses’ delicate shades against the Sicilian night’s daring shades of romance and mystery,” says Domenico Dolce, “There’s such an explosion of colour,” adds Stefano Gabbana, “with the wild roses carpeting the landscape against the drama of the seascape.”
