STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT
Milan: With live texting projected onto giant screens and a video feed of the goings-on backstage, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s show connected to our culture’s obsession with technology and social media; the collection’s ubiquitous motif – stars – could be a reference to the countless celebrities that the Internet has helped spawn. The stars, ranging from oversized to tiny, were sprinkled on everything from chiffon bow blouses to outerwear. Signatures like lace pieces, lingerie inspirations and animal prints will please the label’s clients, but menswear was the real story. The show opened with current “it” model Arizona Muse in a double-breasted black jacquard suit, featuring tomboyish pants cropped just below the knee. Variations on the suit continued throughout the show in masculine pinstripes and plaids, as well as classic black. Iridescent-colored sequins added typical Dolce & Gabbana glitz and glam to the last series of looks, and a crombie coat with the embellishments suggested rockabillies gone Vegas. Glamorous and fun, with classics as well as new ideas, it was everything one could want from a Dolce & Gabbana show.
