MFW: D&G Spring/Summer 2011

Picnic basket check designs clashed with pretty florals and lace at the D&G Spring/Summer 2011 presentation - a feminine, 70’s affair with flared jumpsuits, mini-rompers and floaty, floor-sweeping dresses. The atmosphere was feminine with a whimsical touch.

70's style cuts teamed with Jackie O sunglasses and bandanas brought each look together, while a myriad of fabrics showed up - tailored denim jackets, sheer pieces, lace, red leather and suede. The collection went for a sort of all-out feminine look, with not much in the way of tougher pieces apart from the few tailored items added. It was collectively loose, carefree and Summery.

The colour palette was playful and often clashing - a blushing baby pink with a bright red, grassy green and dark denim blue all jumped out immediately, while some subtle beiges and whites played in the background. The 70’s flares and simplistic slouchy cuts were perfect for summer, while the light fabrics made them look bearable in the season’s heat.

This collection was most importantly fun - the designs seduced you with their carefree attitude and off-beat accessories, willing you to try a taste of the collection's laidback, yet exuberant vibe. It was the opposite of all of these lady-like, ‘mature woman’ collections we’ve been seeing so far, and that’s where Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana triumphed.
