Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2016 Milan Fashion Week MFW FW16 AH16

Ornate, ostentatious, the Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2016 is as flamboyant as its male counterpart. There was a dichotomy between fabulously glamorous garments and over designed looks.  Ugly Christmas sweaters, granny meets cat-lady, overly embroidered with weird fairy tale patches, obesity silhouettes, Peter Pan collars, the Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2016 collection was over designed.

Had the collection been more edited, the designs that were high fashion and wearable might have been the stars of the show, but the OTT piling on of embellishment, embroidery, appliqué, etc., muddied the collection.  Alice in Wonderland mixed with Michael Jackson, the Nut Cracker, and Hoarders. It is a shame because there is this regal air to it, and the tailoring and execution is impeccable…leg of mutton sleeves done right for once at MFW. Don’t get me wrong there are beautiful flawless garments here, and the idea is that we’re being whisked away into a fantasy.  Dolce & Gabbana MFW FW16 AH16 was a princess fairy tale gone wrong and also done oh so right simultaneously.
