WORSHIPFUL PROLETARIAT
Milan: The ecclesiastical nature of Dolce & Gabbana’s design aesthetic lived on for F/W 13, but the designers weren’t limited to reverential opulence this time around, instead choosing silhouettes and styling appropriate for the proletariat. Oversized and wide-sleeved tops printed and embroidered with the Virgin Mary were given a casual slouch tucked into the season’s high-waisted and tapered trousers, while brocade tux jackets mixed with mismatched everyday twill pants. Workboots, although refined, also ran to this theme, as did cropped vests and skinny ribbed knits, these pieces rounding out a thoroughly wearable and surprisingly street-savvy collection.—Nina Stotler
