DOLCE & GABBANA
Dolce & Gabbana have been in the business for nearly 34 years. Long enough to become the internationally-recognised fashion powerhouse they are, but also long enough for Stefano and Domenico to feel the need to educate a few, and remind others, of the brand's core tenets.
D&G used their exhaustive 144look show titled DNA Evolution to explore all 10 of their foundational categories and 40 oppositions from 'velvet vs brocade' to the quirkier 'pasta vs tomato'.
There was a multi-generational line-up walking the new looks down the ramp. At the millennial Instagram-famous end of the spectrum, the young guns included Maharaja Padmanabh Singh and Elias Becker (Boris Becker's son).
The old guard included Monica Bellucci, who wore an androgynous black suit with massive pointed lapels, and the show-closer Naomi Campbell dressed in a gangster-style pinstriped suit and fedora.
The brand has stayed resolutely independent ever since its existence.
The duo is the sole creative bosses and decision makers at the Milanese brand – and it shows.
