Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have never been minimalists. And it was unjustified to expect from them that they would suddenly become them, even with all the hardships of the pandemic. This did not happen. And neither in terms of design, nor with regards to the scope of their creativity - while others reduced the volume of collections, they released as many as 99 looks on the catwalk!
As usual, the new show has become an ode to Sicily's designers - here they also decided not to change themselves. And at the same time they repeated all their iconic prints of recent years. True, not in new fabrics, but using those that already existed - and thus supported the trend for environmental friendliness and sustainability. As a result, all the items in the collection were made using the patchwork technique, and each one includes many prints at once: to say that it turned out brightly means to say nothing. Thus, "dolchiki" killed two birds with one stone - and helped to save the planet, and quoted themselves. With their “experience” in the fashion industry, this does not look like self-confidence, but rather high self-esteem. After all, how many designers do we know? who have continued to be commercially successful over the past 30 years? What is their secretyou ask? In loyalty to ourselves under any circumstances. And in the ability to bend your line to the end. Even if everyone around suddenly decided to become minimalists.
