MFW Spring 2012: D&G
Today's D&G show was the last of its kind. The designers plan to integrate this collection into their main signature line. So, why not go out with a bang? Domenico and Stefano wouldn't have it any other way. The foundation was simple: scarf prints borrowed from Messrs. Dolce and Gabbana's own back catalog, with what looked like a wink and a nod to those of Versace and Hermès as well. You can't do a foulard show without at least a sidelong glance at either of those houses. And did we see Lilly Pulitzer in a matching pink and Kelly green cami and bloomer shorts set? Anyway, what the duo did with all those polka dots, crests, medallions, butterlies, and flowers was pure D&G, be it wrapping and knotting scarves into a tiny strapless cocktail dress or whipping them up in sequined shorts and matching tees. The firm of body and young of heart will scoop them up for the party scene, along with the gold coin jewelry and scarf-wrapped wedges.
