Knee-High Yeti Boots, an Italian Delicacy from Dolce & Gabbana

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana showed their fall/winter 2015 couture collection on the island of Capri today and it was a veritable ode to Italy. Or as Stefano told critic Suzy Menkes, "It's about the beauty of Italy—we don't really have Alta Moda here—we wanted to do something for our country." Apparently they owe the country something for that whole tax evasion thing they may or may not do time for. So they gave the gift of yeti-boots and a matching fur hood over top high-waisted bootie shorts. Now that's amoré.
