dolce & gab­bana

Hong Kong Tatler - - Milan -

More than 140 peo­ple— not mod­els—of dif­fer­ent shapes, sizes, eth­nic­i­ties and ages walked the runway for the Ital­ian house dressed in clothes they had picked out and ac­ces­sorised them­selves. Call it a fash­ion flash­back. The Ital­ian duo’s first show in the mid-1980s fea­tured not mod­els, but peo­ple. Fa­mil­iar D&G mo­tifs such as golden crowns, exuberant pat­terns, ex­trav­a­gant em­bel­lish­ments (es­pe­cially on jeans), vel­vet and bro­cade, and, of course, leop­ard­print any­thing were out in full force. Cheeky pieces such as T-shirts printed with “D&G loves Justin Bieber” aside, what stole the show were the hand­crafted de­signs, such as a baby blue fur coat em­bel­lished with os­trich feath­ers, a glit­ter­ing sil­ver frock with state­ment sleeves, and a silk dress with space­man screen prints.
