Always on the prowl for glamour, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana found it in Africa for resort. While some pieces looked like straight-up trekking gearin finer materialothers were given a fashion twist. A khaki mini, for instance, came with not only utility pockets but also an au courant bubble hem. The house's signature leopard made its requisite appearance, of course, but in addition there was a cheery Mary Quant-style daisy print. Cocktail numbers, meanwhile, were festooned with dolce vita ribbons, flowers, and diamond-bright crystals.
