One look at their ads, and it’s impossible not to ‘get’ what Dolce & Gabbana’s design aesthetic is all about. Inspired by their homeland, the duo look to the baroque splendour, sensual latin spirit and sunny colours of Sicily to create their collections.  And Dolce & Gabbana’s range of handbags for Spring/Summer 2013 most definitely embody this bold, dramatic joie de vivre, with bright woven raffia and intricate artistic prints. dolce & gabbana totes

Could these be the most expensive beach bags ever? Quite possibly. Wear with your teeniest bikini, add a colourful flourish to a sophisticated evening ensemble – or for the total Dolce look, pair with printed pieces, striped separates and oodles of gold accessories.
