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.
