Dolce & Gabbana Debuts a Hijab and Abaya Collection

The Italian fashion house’s new line features flowing, regal Arabian garments

Dolce & Gabbana has unveiled its first-ever Abaya collection. The line features traditional Middle Eastern garments, including ankle-length dresses and hijabs made from georgette, charmeuse and lace fabrics in a variety of neutral tones. Some of the gorgeous pieces boast colorful prints—think: daisies, lemons, polka dots and roses—reminiscent of the brand’s spring/summer 2016 collection.

The Abaya collection is not the brand’s first capsule collection to celebrate a specific cultural market, however. In the past, Dolce & Gabbana has created collections specifically for Brazil, Japan and Mexico.

The Abaya line will be sold this month in all Dolce & Gabbana boutiques in the Middle East, Paris, London, Milan and Munich.
