This was one of my favorite shows of the season. Brilliant casting! Instead of the usual parade of interchangeable models, the runway was full of sincere faces that actually gave a real feel of life to the clothes.
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.
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!
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….
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
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.
