Video: Dolce & Gabbana Recalls The Time When Elegance Ruled Fashion, And Women Wore Silks And Feathers
The men's collection, presented in January, was dedicated to elegance by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, which is not too much in demand in the modern world, where most people prefer convenience and comfort, and a completely different aesthetics are held in high esteem. The ironed arrows on the trousers, the corner of the handkerchief peeking out of the pocket, the flower on the lapel of the jacket - all these once important little things are a thing of the past. Many young men, perhaps, never wore any suit other than a sports one. And the world of the classics, unexpectedly open, can become exciting for them - like everything new and unknown.
Italian designers traditionally develop the same theme in the women's collection. No sweatshirts, no sweatshirts with prints that are customary to "catch" millennials, no minimalism, no deconstruction, no hyper-volume - and no capsule wardrobes of six basic pieces to make 20 looks for any occasion! Dolce and Gabbana continue their campaign for beauty and excess. And elegance, of course.
When the trees were big, the couturiers were great, and the ladies and gentlemen were ladies and gentlemen, not women and men, it was absolutely impossible to leave the house just like that, dressing in a hurry. And the phrase "outfit selection" was not an empty phrase. Pants need not only the right shirt, but also a vest, and a jacket, and a tie, and polished shining shoes. A tie needs the right clip. To the jacket - a brooch so that it is not boring. You also need something for your hair: maybe jewelry, or maybe a hat. How about a luxurious feather design? Or veils? Don't forget about the basics: socks, a bag - everything must be right, perfect. Dolce and Gabbana, fortunately, did all this work for us - they not only sewed the perfect costumes, but also equipped them with everything necessary, so that there are fifteen different things in one image alone,and then according to the most conservative estimates. No gender discrimination, there were no attempts to drive girls into frames: they were not dressed exclusively in fluffy dresses and something luxurious and unconditionally feminine. Women in suits are no less elegant.
But the variety of dresses is still amazing. There were luxurious boudoir dressing gowns on the catwalk, sheath dresses in flowers, leopard spots, pink sequins or delicate powdery draperies, and ball gowns with multi-layered fluffy skirts. And weddings, of course, too - for every taste.
