MILAN…Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s D&G often presents a younger look at sophisticated Milan fashion, capturing a young, carefree style while maintaining quality and craftsmanship. For F/W 09, the duo looked to performers for inspiration, crafting a collection of showy pieces which could outfit any dancing girl or singer. Vintage references were heavy, with everything from jackets with tails and military detailing to quilted bustiers, making a rich presentation tempered by modern graphic t-shirts and chunky platforms. Look to D&G, one of the more appropriate lines out of Milan for this market, for inspiration this season.
