Life in Technicolour

This season Dolce and Gabbana realized that the runway is not just a platform through which they can live out their deep dark oiled to perfection fantasies(wink wink) and came out with a commercially viable(read:something people would actually want to wear) collection targetted at their key demographic-fashion forward gentlemen,such as myself,ahem.So there were drain pipe pants in a myriad of colours paired with high tops,pop art inspired sweat shirts/jumpers and bulky fur trimmed jackets-it was basicsally D & G's take on what Gucci does best,and should probably have the monopoly on(considering nobody else can quite seem to pull off the whole preppy thing like them).All in all a good showing,the only downer though?The clothes would've looked better on skinnier models and not the buff adonises that they usually send down the runway!

My take on the trend:


  1. thanks!!
    i thought i could do with a bit of a change!

  2. I've got to say though, that I think D&G doing Mickey Mouse and Coke is a little late. Zara, Mango, Uniqlo and a lot of other high street brands have been doing them for three seasons now and it's not like these are markedly different from those.
    Also, I miss the slick, sexy, Italian man look D&G usually channels.
