You know how there’s an old saying that spring comes in like a lion (and out like a lamb, but that’s not what we’re here to talk about)? Based on Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2013 shoes, the minds behind the brand took the saying to heart; these shoes certainly don’t lack for presence, whether it’s from structure, print or color. Sometimes the designs go for all three at once, which results in a bright, brash combination that can only be described as totally Dolce & Gabbana.
If cutout wedges painted with florals and faces aren’t your thing, then Dolce has applied the same springtime joy to more traditional shoes in throwback Sicilian prints. The visuals are a tad more digestible in the form of a strappy sandal or low-heeled slingback, but they still give the wearer the opportunity to make a footwear entrance that’s positively leonine, just like spring itself.
