Mens Runway Review: Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012
Jun 18, 2011 - by Daily Mister
Mens Fashion Week has officially begun in Milan. What better way to celebrate than by reviewing one of our favorite mens label, Dolce & Gabbana.
The Italian design duo sent down their Spring/Summer collection, called The Net, earlier today in Milan. Besides the latest fashions, the show displayed that the brand is has a great grasp on social media. Besides live streaming their show (9AM EST) they also broadcasted comments from online with a screen above the runway.
The designers also thought out of the box when it can to the garments. The show started off with a classic Dolce & Gabbana suit but what followed had me caught of guard. Apparently for this collection it was all about what appeared to be nets. (Hence the name)
The designers incorporated these nets in as many pieces as possible.By many I mean: tops, pants, shorts, jacket, and even shoes. It was interesting to see the different materials used in the same way from the perforated leather in the footwear to the material that shaped the tailored blazers.
My favorite piece, believe it or not, wasn't a garment. In fact I have become obsessed with the mirrored sunglasses showcased on some of the models. They will surely be on more and more faces next season
Domenico & Stefano definitely have a hit collection on their hands that will be very hard to top the rest of the week. They managed to take what one would consider glorified mesh but with the neutral colors and sheer innovation of this collection the outcome became something totally different.
