Do you feel that the quite vibrant colors of spring that have been popping up everywhere just aren’t your thing?  This new Dolce & Gabbana Bouquet Collection Spring/Summer 2012 may fit your softer side.  They really remind me of a spring bouquet of flowers.  Of course, with Dolce & Gabbana there is both fashion and beauty as the influence for their collections

Fashion Inspiration
With Mambo Italiano as the soundtrack, the upbeat theme of Dolce & Gabbana’s collection for Spring/Summer 2012 evoked the joyful spirit of Summer in a small town in the South of Italy. The exuberant sensuality of the Italian culture and tradition provides the perfect inspiration for the new color collection, according to the company.

Beauty Inspiration
The flirtatious new color collection for Spring/Summer 2012 that sizzles with the fashion and fun of a Fifties Italian Summer.  “The luscious color and vibrant beauty of the fashion prints inspired us to translate the idea into a range of joyful shades for lips, eyes and nails,” explains Stefano Gabbana.

In the collection you’ll find floral shades of Lilac and Rose Petal along with fruity vibrant shades of Lemon, Mint, Raspberry and Anise along with the seasonal classics of sparkling blue Acqua and sunlit Shimmer.  And something we haven’t seen in awhile is the matching look of sandals and toenail polish.

The collection includes five shades of Ultra-Shine lipgloss. Last time I was in NYC Saks I purchased my first Dolce & Gabbana Ultra-Shine Lipgloss and I have to say I absolutely LOVE the texture and color. It’s one of my g0-to glosses.  There are also six new nail lacquers a new eyeshadow quad and six new eyeliners – all shown above.
