Dolce & Gabbana have just revealed a new abaya collection, which comes complete with the designer's trademark Sicilian floral prints. Discover the must-have designs now...

A year after Dolce & Gabbana first debuted their abayas comes a second capsule collection, just in time for Ramadan. Echoing a similar colour palatte to the original line, the SS17 26-strong range of abayas and hijabs are as embellished as they are pattern-perfect.

In a recent interview with Buro 24/7 Middle East Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana spoke about their abaya collection, with Gabbana saying: "We carried out a lot of research for this project. We wanted to be sure to understand local tastes and preferences. Then we took the Middle Eastern style and added a touch of Italian character."

"We also took into consideration the common elements that tie the Middle Eastern regions together and we transformed them into lace, embroidery, dresses, the colours of the sand and desert dunes, the perfumes and spices of the bazaar," continued Dolce. "We translated our desire of meeting women's needs from all over the world and of every culture into fabrics and shapes."
