Dolce and Gabbana’s Spring 2011 collection was my favourite of the season. I love watching the shows, but am not often so mesmerised by a collection – I could not take my eyes off it! So much so, that two months on and I am still thinking about it, finally I have a blog as my mental outlet!
The collection is predominantly white (cameos of black and leopard add interest, but don’t steal the show), clean, crisp, embellished with embroidery and lace. It’s classic yet modern, young but sophisiticated. It mixes fitted and flowing sillouettes seamlessly (forgive the pun!). The sequinned pieces in the latter half of the show are incredibly elegent, yet fresh.
It will be a huge hit with celebrities this coming spring, especially those spending time aboard yachts in the mediterranean. The show was incredibly calming, meditative even. The white, the music, the rhythm – a wonderful escape from modern life. Ah, if only I could afford to buy the whole collection (and requisite lifestyle…)!
As a designer-in-training, for me, this collection is as close to perfection as it gets. I’m in awe and insanely jealous of D&G’s genius all at the same time!
