Dolce & Gabbana Releases Its First-Ever Hijab Collection

On Sunday, Dolce & Gabbana launched their first collection of hijabs and abayas. Aiming for modesty, the collection features black and beige items accentuated with lace as well as floral and lemon prints.

“The new Dolce&Gabbana Abaya collection is a reverie amidst the desert dunes and skies of the Middle East: an enchanting visual story about the grace and beauty of the marvelous women of Arabia,” D&G wrote on their Facebook page.

ok, guys. you can think whatever you like about women who wear any kind of coverage and about their motivation to do so (that they are made to do it by the men-ruled society, they are opressed, etc etc...).. it is your right to have an opinion... but just think for a moment about this as a form of casual clothing: why should not muslim women around the world enjoy access to high fashion?? there is no reason for it! so get over it and let people wear what they want and acquire their clothes from their favourite brands (if they have enough cash for D & G anyways...). I think this is great. Fashion is created not for one race/ethnicity/religion/culture only, it must be available/accessable to everyone and must reflect the entire variety of peoples and cultures of our world.

You have a point, but I also think you're missing the biggest, most important point. You can not be for women's rights and human rights and support Islam. You just can't.

I CAN NOT get enough of this. I think it's brilliant and more designers should corner more niche markets!

Why? 40 years ago there were almost no women wearing hijab in Afghanistan. They dressed as European women if they wanted to, they had freedom to study, drive a car, take a walk in the park in short dresses without being stoned to death... Now they are back to stoneage, and taliban made the whole world believe that this is what they all want. Way to go...

It looks for me like it's a new way of selling "trends" by playing the scandal card... And by the way, people who tell it's a shame there is muslim nice clothes, or in contrary people saying it's a shame that muslim woman wear things like these...please get both on some remote island together and let us live!
