Shying away from the extravagance and glamour they’re known for, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce celebrated their label’s 20th anniversary by fully embracing their Sicilian heritage. Inspired by Giuseppe Tornatore’s film Baaria, the clothes had a toned down, gritty sensibility. The tough attitude of knit long johns tucked into work boots was balanced out with speckled sweater coats — already a major trend at the F/W 10 shows. An oil-stain treatment given to denim gave several looks the laborer feel the designers intended. Even the formal items, which included velvet tuxedos and flannel suits, had a slightly threadbare appearance and were often paired with thermal underwear to ground the collection in its humble roots.
