Kitsch and cool; few designers on the planet could make veggie prints look this sexy! But who better than Dolce & Gabbana to rise to the challenge?

From onions and aubergines to hot, hot chillies, brightly coloured vegetable prints with a painterly feel graced the catwalk.

'Mambo Italiano' sung by Sophia Loren set the tone while models in '50s-inspired silhouettes strutted to the beat.

Wicker sandals and bags, tutti-frutti earrings and floral corsaged headpieces styled it up while neutral, crochet pieces balanced the colour palette.

This tropical, floral print dress from River Island has also picked up on the kitsch undertone while it's pencil shape and halter-neck give it that retro feel. Team with a loose crochet top to add a relaxed edge and nude peep-toe heels to work that midi length.
