    I cannot understand why more show’s don’t have distinct or interesting models!

    I love those striped shorts. Models are fabulous.

    Wow, these garments would look equally amazing on women.

      Agreed! I would love a pair of those striped shorts!

      • Richard

        July 17, 2012 at 8:47 am

        Ooooo…that’s the problem…”these garments would look equally amazing on women.” Some of these are awesome but not all. I like when it looks like there’s a man’s body under the clothes. With the blouse-like tops and full pleated shorts, it’s hard to say what’s under there.

      Same here Tony. Those pleats are horrendous. I thought men were done with those.

    July 16, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    I’m surprised this was one of your favorites. This was one of the worst shows of men’s fashion week. Guess different strokes for different folks.

    Great photography nonetheless

    Love the cut of the pants and shorts. So summer. So european!

    Love the clothes for me – and I am a woman !. I really appreciate the interesting models…well done !

    Really unique models, love the clothes! So vibrant for summer!

    Totally in love with those shorts!

    It’s about time that normal waisted trousers are back! I noticed recently that even the skinny men waddle now because our belts are around our upper thighs.

      absolutely true.

  13. Paolo

    July 16, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    These would look 100 times better on females. Interesting pieces, but barely masculine in most of these shots. Except for the briefcases.

  14. kayron

    July 16, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Something about the combo of the high waists, high rises, and the way the models look brings the SNL character “Mango” to mind. I don’t mean that in a good or a bad way, just an observation.

  15. ligia

    July 16, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    i like the first look



    July 16, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    I love the diversity in this show, you’re right it makes the clothes believable and wearable. They should do that for women’s wear too although Jean Paul Gaultier has been doing it for years and it turns out great!

  17. Sumi

    July 16, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    The models are the best part of the show!

    Not good at all! Who would wear these anywhere?

    July 17, 2012 at 12:53 am

    I would love to get my hands on the fabric used to make the clothes in the 4th and 5th picture. I would make magic with that. It’s gorgeous.

  25. Alison

    July 17, 2012 at 1:35 am

    Its so true! Such a variety of models, and it really works so well! I love that you can picture the clothes on every type of person this way.

    When someone says ‘the models are the best part of the show,’ then the designer’s got some work to do….

    July 17, 2012 at 2:51 am

    You are so right!! i love the clothes, and the models, wow, it all made me think of the future of fashion, more authenticity, more individuality, D&G rock!

  33. B.

    July 17, 2012 at 2:55 am

    Not a fan of the high waisted shorts !


  34. Charikleia

    July 17, 2012 at 3:21 am

    Too much of a schoolboy attire of the ’50s, but still most outfits are too my liking.

    Am not sure however as to what kind of guy would pull off those prints without allowing them taking him over.

    Last, apart from the interesting (non) models, one cannot help but drool over the gentleman with the swimming suit… (yes, the “light blue” model)

    A big kiss from Greece!

  35. Richard

    July 17, 2012 at 3:21 am

    some very interesting colours and patterns there…only the cut of the shorts is a bit too harry highpants for me.
    & looks like anyone can be a model at D&G! maybe there’s hope for me yet, i’m happy to negotiate my standard $10k/day….

  36. Kate

  38. Xana Athens

    Very comfortable clothes…but I think… a little strange for the greek style.

  39. Mira

    July 17, 2012 at 3:47 am

    Actually I´m a Dolce & Gabbana but this collection is kinda strange. It doesn´t look good on the models too. I wouldn´t want men to walk around with these clothes.

    finally, a show with interesting and down to earth models.

    Great photos, but it prefer it with models!

    That’s definitely the worst D&G’s collection i’ve ever seen….Great shots but awful clothes….

    amazing pictures!


  46. Mariatru

    July 17, 2012 at 5:28 am

    Definitely a great show. I love high waists and the deep, warm colours. And you are right about the faces, Mr. S.

  47. Hannah

    July 17, 2012 at 5:36 am

    I like how much more interesting these models are! All shows should be like this. Love the printed shirt in the first shot!

  48. Wayde

    July 17, 2012 at 5:43 am

    I don’t wish to bring a damper on what was clearly such a tradional, artisnal show but these clothes feel more like ”Escapist Fashion” to me rather than something that will apeal to the mass market. It certainly took me on a trip and was a celebration of all things Sicily and the roots of the house. The problem I have is forgetting that I am not the only one who treats clothing like fun objects and likes to let my personality really shine through. I am really looking forward to seeing how these clothes are translated into commercial peices.

  49. Archibald

    July 17, 2012 at 5:47 am

    I can imagine that the show was great, but I do not like the clothes displayed.

    It gives me a feeling of young men wearing ladies shorts and blouses. Waists just that wee bit too high, trousers a few inches too short and wide.

    Most of the short trousers would look absolutely great on female models, but this is just my tuppence worth thugh.


    July 17, 2012 at 5:49 am

    nice men collection


  51. Sapphire

    July 17, 2012 at 5:56 am

    I like the looser fit of clothes. Strange how the times have changed but it’s actually a greater sign of confidence you don’t skintight clothes to show off your physique. The use of “normal people” feels a little gimmicky. But it makes it feel more authentic as street clothes.

  52. Verity

    July 17, 2012 at 6:30 am

    This is exactly the kind of thing I would love to see more of this from you, fashion with soul & connection to the market/audience. It really is not about pretty or identicate models, its about real. Less big brands and more underbelly and up and coming labels from the fashion weeks you visit please. Cheers & much love Vx

    Sooo Italian, by the book Italian, these boys fallen from a local Italian street (except the 6packs guy who sounds surreal among them), thats what I call a show not only a runway… Good Job

  57. Greg

    July 17, 2012 at 7:18 am

    OK…once you get past the swim shorts ( ok, the model in them)…the striped shorts and all of the shoes are great…is that a cout-out oxford? I agree, nice to see a fuller, natural waist cut.

  58. AET

    July 17, 2012 at 7:53 am

    Clothes – eh.
    I love the models though. Please do this with female models too!!

  59. Sevan

    July 17, 2012 at 8:14 am

    This collection would have been sublime on women.
    I love the shoes and the “cartables.”
    I wonder how this is going to be translated for the men on the street.

    I love the casting of this show; makes the clothes seem even more ready-to-wear.

    Not sure how I feel about the pleated, high-on-the-waist short, though. I’d like them for myself…

  65. GP Park

    July 17, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    I always view the shows you post on video to get a better feel for the clothes and the show.

    At first glance from of the stills you had posted I thought for sure I was not going to be a fan of this one.
    After viewing the video (posted on youtube) I got a better idea of how the clothes looked.

    There were a lot of pieces I ended up liking.
    The runway video gives you a better perspective of the entire show.

    Thanks for sharing

    I’m all for more prints in men’s clothing but the cut of the shirts make them look like blouses, especially the floral ones, and I would prefer sleeker pants too.

  72. Laura Stevick

    July 17, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    It’s amazing how rigid men’s fashion can be. Do people really think fashion is supposed to make them feel comfy? Maybe that’s what some people use it for, to reinforce everything they think to be true. But of course, the best designers are the visionaries: the ones who push things. With that said, I hope to see much more controversial fashions shows that push these new boundaries we see above. The pieces are beautiful and the cuts are amazing.

  73. Anthony

    July 17, 2012 at 3:37 pm

    The colours are dour and dull and there is something horribly wrong with the high, pleated waists.

  74. bubba

    July 17, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    horrible. no dude over the age of 12 should wear these clothes.

    we are lucky that your photos do take us there. love the faces, the mix of fabrics and the entire vibe of this collection. 2013 look promising!


  76. Emily

    July 17, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    Love this look! It’s very earthy and the palettes are great. Except maybe the floral top, it’s pushing it a little in my opinion. xo

    So the great Idea by Dolce & Gabbana this season is to dress men with women’s outfit?
    I mean really well done and beautiful, but women’s.

  79. Fashionford

    July 17, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    I absolutely adore the idea of the “everyday man” walking the runway!!! Kudos D&G

    yeah, real people on the runway. Some of them look very young.

    Yes, I agree. I loved the honest feel of the expressions.

  82. Lili

    July 18, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Just watched the show and it is brilliant!
    Models are from different age groups and of different sizes with expressive faces! I felt in a busy street of Florence in 1945. I think that bringing back the high waist pants in menswear is a very intelligent move and I’d like to see more of these in the streets instead of sagging pants. The best show I have seen so far this season!

  83. adella

    July 18, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    I saw the full showcase at ftv youtube – the whole thing was kind of weird, very unusual, but also very different… it’s a mixed feelings for this particular collection.

  84. ttea

    July 19, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    It’s true, those men really seem to have character. I like D&G for their men’s clothes. I especially like this collection because of the use of colour and pattern. The blue and brown outfit in the first photo is great.

  87. Kate

    July 20, 2012 at 5:54 am

    I love how much inspiration women can draw from men’s fashion. Just looking at those prints and silhouettes has my head swimming with ideas!

  88. Jmoya

    August 15, 2012 at 10:00 am

    Um. I guess D&G is too cool for normal men. If I showed these clothes to my husband, he’d probably say something like, “Those clothes would cost me my man-card.” And he’d be right …

  89. Jeffry

    December 29, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    Where can I get those swimming trunks! I have been looking for them!! Help
