Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 Milan Fashion Week

Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 Collection invokes a yearning for an Italian holiday and its Sicilian Inspiration is quite evident.

The Collection had boardwalk stripes and baroque prints—complemented by sun-kissed skin, winged eyeliner, and silk hair scarves. The collection is brightly colored, with beautiful, rich fabrics. Models paraded down the runway under the weight of shoulder-dusting chandelier earrings shaped like street puppets, and swung printed, top-handle bags embellished with woven straw accents. Knotted headscarves, pom pom-topped platforms, and whipstitched flats provided the finishing touches.

I like that it also has a sense of humour and creativity with the use of burlap sacks or 'gunias' as we call them in Swahili as one of the fabrics.

For some the collection will probably be too busy but I love it!

  1. WTF?!?! This is THE ugliest shit I have EVER seen - what the hell are they thinking?? What's with the big weird faces that looks like a 5 yr. old drew them? And a burlap sack?? Really?? This is just like the episode of I Love Lucy where Fred and Ricky get Ethel and Lucy to parade around in flower sacks because they lied and told them it was the latest fashion in Italy. Fashion is a joke. Its like they just want to see how stupid people are, and if they'll believe something is "cool" if they're told it is. Fucking ridiculous.
