Once upon a time…. a label named Dolce & Gabbana created a magical collection fit for the characters in fairy tales. For Autumn Winter 14/15 a virtual storyboard of clothes presented us woodland animals (appliqué woodland creatures prints); late Baroque mini-dresses and coats and hoods for a modern-day Red Riding Hood.
But oh for the finale, Blog Reader. In a perfectly wicked Medieval turn, D&G gave us an army of female knights in shining armour – shimmering tunics and jewel encrusted rompers (and models with legs that would stop any jousting tournament).
“Rich brocade mini dresses printed with gold keys came over leggings and little jewelled T-bar pixie shoes or ankle boots – this was all easy to wear in shapes that were almost practical at times, but all with the extra special Dolce treatment – the finale produced an army of girls in glittering silver and black cocktail dresses fit for parties all over the world next season. On the penultimate day of Milan Fashion Week, a good story was just what we needed – and David Gandy, Monica Belluci and Eva Herzigova in the front row ensured that, no matter the narrative, the emphasis here is all upon beautiful people.” – Vogue.com
