Dolce & Gabbana Reveals First Hijab and Abaya Collection

Some styles feature printed daises, lemons and red roses

Dolce & Gabbana has unveiled its first hijab and abaya collection.

The designer released photos of the high-end fashion pieces over the weekend though Style.com/Arabia. The hijabs and abayas — the latter of which are the full-length, sleeveless dresses worn by some Muslim women — come mostly in black and beige, although the Spring 2016 collection offers garments with daises, lemons and red roses.

The items come in sheer georgette and satin weave charmeuse fabrics and are laced at the hems, Style.com reports.

In October, clothing retailer H&M made headlines for its ad campaign that featured Muslim model Mariah Idrissi who wears the hijab. “It always feels like women who wear hijab are ignored when it comes to fashion,” said Idrissi in an interview with Fusion. “Our style, in a way, hasn’t really mattered, so it’s amazing that a brand that is big has recognized the way we wear hijab.”
