A stun­ning tuxedo and ac­ces­sories by Dolce & Gab­bana

It might come as a sur­prise to learn Ital­ian lux­ury fash­ion mae­stro Ste­fano Gab­bana has been quoted as say­ing he has sel­dom worn black tie: “In my whole life, I’ve worn black tie three times. I can’t tie the knot my­self.” Dou­bly sur­pris­ing since if there is one thing D&G does bet­ter than any­one else, it is a beau­ti­fully cut tuxedo. The la­bel’s Alta Sar­to­ria col­lec­tion — fit­tings avail­able by ap­point­ment only at its Lon­don store, 6–8 Bond Street — is its take on haute cou­ture and demon­strates the depth of D&G’s tai­lor­ing ex­per­tise. This ink-black tuxedo is per­fect to wear for fes­tive sea­son nights out teamed with a pair of em­broi­dered vel­vet slip­pers. Or per­haps you pre­fer to make like Gab­bana and go tie-less (evening­wear these days is about break­ing the rules, af­ter all).
