Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012
With the end of their younger label D&G, the Dolce & Gabbana boys have definitely made the right statement in their main line collection. Baroque inspired pieces of black and white lace and gold accents dominated the first thirty-four looks (yes, the FIRST thirty-four), indicating the older, original brand. Quickly following the older brand was the clear D&G youth – fun florals adorned the runway for a brief moment, encapsulating Domenico and Stefano’s knack for creating youthful pieces. Soon after, however, the young and old merged in to one eternal and age defying looks, apart from a few swimsuit/romper mixes. The florals returned but this time with added classical Italian artwork prints, which were intermixed with the oh-so-classic Dolce lace, a must-have for the season. Each model a Sicilian princess in her own right, the finale herd of models in baroque ensembles had a clear message: D&G might be gone, but not forgotten, because she is the Dolce woman.
