Most Iconic Dolce and Gabbana Bag Review: Miss Sicily

Most Iconic Dolce and Gabbana Bag Review: Miss Sicily

Every famous fashion bag manufacturer has two or three most iconic bags which are timeless classics that probably will never go out of style. If we take the most popular Italian fashion house, the most iconic Dolce&Gabanna bag is definitely Miss Sicily.

But even when thinking of buying those popular designer pieces, there are always a million questions every girl asks herself. Is it a good choice? Is it practical? What does it fit? Is it worth the investment? Here is our review to help you.


History of Creation

Dolce & Gabbana was founded by Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. In 1982, the partners opened a tiny studio in the center of Milan which almost immediately won the favor of the whole world. There is hardly a single woman who would not dream of having such an accessory as a Dolce & Gabbana bag in her wardrobe. These bags are of unsurpassed quality and style. Each product is made of genuine leather and reliable hardware, using high technologies. Dolce & Gabbana bags сombine classics and innovation, audacity and elegance, informal style and femininity.

The bag with the proud name Miss Sicily was created by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana back in 2009. It became part of the autumn-winter collection and reflected the whole essence of the Italian Duo – elegance, passion, brightness, love and, perhaps, Sicily itself with its emotions and color! Unforgettable dresses of women from the Italian island and their fervent nature became the source of ideas for many years of improvements to the collection. It was the first Dolce&Gabbana bag to have leopard and tiger colors.


Design, Sizes and Colors

Dolce and Gabanna's Miss Sicily is a top handle satchel bag. It has a structured shape and feet at the bottom that allow the bag to remain in quite a good condition even after many years of use. 

It features a magnetic flap closure that opens to one main compartment with zippered and open pockets. 

Miss Sicily comes with a detachable and adjustable leather shoulder strap making it super versatile: you can wear it in your hands, on your arm, as a shoulder bag and even as a crossbody!

Miss Sicily is available in various sizes, from the "micro" that appeared in the fall-winter 2013 collection to travel bags. Originally conceived as a men's, the largest “Sicily” was released in the SS12 collection.

Micro Sicily Bag 4.3" x 3.7" x 2.3"
Mini Sicily Bag 6.8" x 5.7" x 3.5"
Small Sicily Bag 7.9" x 6.3" x 3.1"
Medium Sicily Bag 13.3"x 10.2" x 5.5"
Large Sicily Bag 15.4" x 11.4" x 6.1"


The most popular medium size is big enough to fit all your everyday essentials without looking jam-packed.

This iconic Dolce and Gabanna bag is available in a variety of color and texture variations, changing its appearance from season to season. Designers manage to skillfully mix textures: simple classic leather, exotic snake and suede, as well as printed leopard pattern, and decorate it with embroidery and applique. The only thing that remains unchanged is the gold hardware on the handles and the brand logo on the front.

Representing the Italian idea of beauty and discreet luxury, Miss Sicily will become a great addition to any style and outfit.


Why is Miss Sicily a timeless classic?

Every season, fashion designers offer updated versions of their favorite "miss", not letting fans get bored, and many of their star clients, including Kylie Minogue, Victoria Beckham, Ashley Greene, and other celebrities, collect entire collections, chasing limited copies of Miss Sicily Bag by Dolce&Gabbana. Miss Sicily is constantly evolving and reaching a higher status, because it can be ordered in any luxury incarnation, such as crocodile skin, and the abundance of colors and finishes is simply limitless! Miss Sicily is a perfect reflection of the very DNA of the Dolce&Gabbana brand.
