We were so so worried about D&G winding down as it’s defined some serious trends for over a decade but Dolce & Gabbana is still very much alive and our go-to for sassy evening wear (after we win the lottery).
Inspiration: Glamour and incredibly detailed beading in a Vegas show girl kind of way. And vegetables (who’d have thought!) Of course Italian culture also figured…PASTA EARRINGS!
The Look: For party time: sexy crocheted and lace black dresses showing a lot of skin, dresses encrusted with plenty of coloured stones mixed with glitzy fringing, show-girl style sequinned swimsuits with fringing.
For daytime, Dolce & Gabanna took inspiration from vegetables (in a more grown-up way than Moschino Cheap & Chic) with chills, aubergines, onions and tomatoes creating rural idyll print retro-style dresses. Full skirts, printed chiffon, cut-out cotton playsuits and 1950s style underwear made for a sexy rustic look.
Best Bit: The finale where models packed the catwalk wearing retro sequinned swimwear. So glam.
Notes: Scroll all the way down for the frow including Scarlett and Paloma Faith.
An evening dress to die for (must weigh a tonne with all that beading!)
Sewing skillz innit.
50s inspiration but so glam
