Their Italian roots have always been a focus point in their collections, but for SS2017 Domenico and Stefano took the love for their country a little further. Their complete summer line up seemed an ode to everything the Italian cuisine is famous for. Pasta, pizza, icecream, wine, fish and appertivi. And who wouldn’t want to work a silk pyjama with ‘gelato’print, an airy fusilli dress or a tomoto hat? Aiming at a younger audience (a fresh club of millennials sat front row at their show) Dolce & Gabbana brought the fun back in fashion (if it was ever gone). This was maximalism at its peek, with gold embroidered ‘matador’ jackets, encrusted sunglasses, floral hatpieces deluxe, statement bags, vived colors, print extravaganza and a large amount of sparkling crosses in the mix. For those able to look through the madness there were some beautiful creations. A perfectly tailored suit and a splendid black lace midi dress among other pieces that show the portray the designers fashion skills. Yet it was the maximalism in this collection, the dancers on the stage and the white printed Tee filled finale that made the noise that will eventually reach the Dolce customer. A fashion loving youngster looking for something original to wear on the next Instagram post. A quick fix. Let’s hope some of the more classic Dolce & Gabbana creations won’t get lost in the hype.
