The Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2017 collection began with a tapestry print black on wine three-piece suit with gorgeous top-stitching, puffer coats- one of which was patch-work, checkered denim-perhaps embroidered, military jackets and these infintile graphic sweaters and shirts meant to give the same effect.
The fabric selection for the suiting is so chic- black on black, subtly different and on trend. The closures also added a unique touch, but I hate shoes that look like driving shoes and slippers- embellished or not.
It seemed incongruous, the graphic denim jacket and cat pants…doesn’t that say it all? The Dolce & Gabanna FW17 runway show was ornate and embellished, casual and boldly graphic, loud and muted, costume and ready to wear- it’s usually ostentatious but this seems less edited, less cohesive. Perhaps if we could take The Bird Cage out of Dolce and Gabbana it would all be fabulous and there would be no kitties, no granny looks…but we expect kitschy from them. Speaking of kitschy, isn’t that the floral Kim Kardashian wore?
