The Dolce & Gabbana Spring ready-to-wear show was a good vantage point for observing how the old-fashioned runway system is being questioned—pushed by digital technology to the brink of falling apart.Here to say that Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce were the first enthusiasts of the changing media – live-streaming, bloggers on front row-while also becoming pioneers of the excessively luxuriant “experiential” travel habit and this has now taken over the summer schedule.Anyway, they have been Italian fashion’s best advocates for bringing the outside in and in outside- thanks to the invention of mobile phone cameras, all this details, movement, history, and exuberance can be captured, shared and treasured by all. But back to their spring/summer collection.This was a traditional show. After the real dancers, came the models, walking single file, not much smiling. The looks are demonstrated all of the values of the „Italianate“ house, the prints on the dresses , like a pasta, seafood, gelato and tomatos ( pomodori pelati) and same time the incredible embellishment of the sequined, toy soldier glittering military jackets.
There were infinite variations of the same entertaining but overplayed theme in Dsquared2 spring/summer 2017 collection. Denim and the fabulous tops and jackets, the following look blended ripped denim jeans defined by sequin and top with Swarovski peppered, leopard print leg-of-mutton sleeves against a dark body with an engraved crest, there was a glorious recklessness in the bags piled upon bags and the heaped layering of ribboned jewelry on glinting sparkle and animal snarl. Too chic the new Dsquared2 but we love it! Keep rocking!
Versace S/S 2017 is about the nylon techno fabrics which are threaded with drawstrings, pulled and ruched into a couple of asymmetrically sexy dresses in green and navy blue.Is about rainwear chopped into an awesome jacket and matching miniskirt diagonally bisected with snaps; leather blouson with souped-up nylon track pants.Versace is a Naomi Campbell on the runway.
But first see the collection, the show review will be posted later.
With her Spring/Summer 2017 collection Miuccia Prada decided to simplify, declutter, and de-intellectualize the nowadays fashion Backstage she said: “Instead of exploring the history of women, which I have for a while, I decided to take care of now, the present, and trying to find elegance.”There were many reminders of Prada’s taste down the years, like her permanent passion for a 20-30s Deco-graphic print on a midi dress, but what is really stood out were Prada’s extravagant marabou trimmings on stoles, smothering envelope bags and fluffing up necklines.With this collection Prada shows us various definitions of the way a woman can be. “A new way of elegance” -the words she used to describe her particular offering.
