Dolce & Gabbana – MFW AW12
Dolce & Gabbana pulled out all the stops for next season with a highly prestigious and rich collection, fit for only The Queen!
My outsider view on the runway:
With Dolce & Gabbana announcing last season that the D&G SS12 collection would be the last, the fashion duo had to make sure the mainline AW12 collection fused everything from D&G and more. And my GOSH it’s plush plush plush!
This is the first Milan collection I’ve seen where I’ve felt like I was watching each countries royalty rock the runway. Every detail from the hair and make up, to the accessories and chandelier earrings, right down to the thick embroidery coats, dresses and matching shoes, took me back to the 19th Century!
The super thick velvet fabrics and the oversized accessories, matched with the heavy use of gold made me thinking of Russian royalty.
No detail was overlooked and for the younger D&G fans, softer and more playful chiffon shirts, see through lace dresses and high waisted shorts in edgy florals was all out in force just to remind us all that the D&G spirit is alive and well.
The whole collection sure does showcase richness, opulence and lavishness without appearing too smug.
