MATADORS AND SENORITAS
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana went to Spain for their spring collection, portraying iconic looks like super masculine three-piece bull fighter uniforms, Spanish shawls and ultra-feminine temptress styles from Evita. Waistcoats hugged the body, framing collared dickeys with leather tassels tied into a bow at the neck; high-waisted toreador pants matched the proportion play. Multi-layered looks were exposed with see-through fabrics like lace and swiss dot edged with fringe. Long-sleeved dresses revealed Dolce and Gabbana’s famous structured undergarments and sheer mesh trench coats provided minimal coverage. Rose-printed skirts were worn with boned corset tops providing a romantic theme that seemed inspired by Madonna’s, La Isla Bonita. The show ended in a parade of 50s-esque lingerie-inspired bodysuits with a mix of lace details, girdle panels, leopard prints in blue or red, and a romantic floral bouquet print — each revealing what had been beneath all the looks, including the menswear suits.
