We've talked a lot about Dolce & Gabbana's Spring/Summer 2012 campaign and trend offering, so here's guessing lots of other people have been too. With this in mind, it was no real surprise to see their statement print appear on many a high-street collection over the past few months.

Clearly proving to be one of SS12's style setters, Dolce and Gabbana's garments are those of sheer luxury and fun with a typically joyful Italian spirit; think tomatoes, aubergine, courgette, onions and hot pepper prints brightening up classic ruched dresses and matching two pieces made of a fine cotton. Lust worthy or what? Starting at a sharp-intake-of-breath-taking £392 (and that's for the tiniest of shorts), the real thing might not be an option for everyone, but just in case here are some of our favourites...
