Dolce & Gabbana focus in on the Middle Eastern market with the debut of their abaya collection. Buro 24/7 Middle East have the first collection details...

Arabia is at the heart of many fashion movements of late so it was no surprise when Dolce & Gabbana released their first line of luxury abayas. The Italian fashion brand joins an every-growing list of labels who already create Ramadan-inspired capsule collections including Oscar de la Renta, DKNY, Mango and Tommy Hilfiger, as well as Uniqlo, who entered the market last year with their line of traditional oriental headgear.

The new Dolce & Gabbana range includes the traditional hijab and abaya, which is adorned with their trademark Sicilian floral prints. The monochrome collection is highlighted with delicate jewels, lace and embroidery that sits pretty along the panelling. Here's a sneak peek at the Dolce & Gabbana abaya collection...

The Dolce & Gabbana abayas are available at Harvey Nichols, Mall of the Emirates.
