For some reason, I would really love it if Dolce & Gabbana wowed us all with an It Bag. I’m not sure exactly why I’m so interested in Dolce in particular having a big accessories moment, but every time one of their collections comes around, I mentally cross my fingers in hopes that they’ll give us the next Celine Luggage Tote. Instead, every time, they give us more Miss Sicily bags.

There’s not anything wrong with the Miss Sicily, of course, but Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012 has such a grand sense of drama and fun in its exceptionally Italian ready to wear that I wish I felt like the bags were something more than phoned in. There’s a little bit of floral needlepoint here and there, but in general, Dolce has given us lots of textures and sizes in the black Miss Sicily, and almost all of them feel like they’ve seen the runway sometime in the last few seasons. If someone told me that Dolce has a set of bags that they use on the runway every season, filled in with a few collection-specific bags to distract everyone, I’d actually believe them at this point. The brand is clearly creative and well-funded, so the choice not to do more with its huge accessories potential confuses me greatly. Maybe next season.
