MILAN…Clearly taking the current popularity of plaid to heart, D&G made a collection for F/W 08 almost exclusively built on this classic pattern. A wild concoction of plaids in various scales and colors, ruffle print dresses, blouses and even tights and pants were covered in checks. Perhaps more puzzling was the combination of plaid and paisley on some bohemian tunic and pant ensembles. Despite these eccentricities, this D&G collection is still young and lively, sure to be a hit with die hard brand fanatics.
