MILAN–Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce always put on a rollicking show for their D&G range, and Fall 2011 was no different.
This season, they took inspiration from the early Nineties. Madonna’s “Vogue” (mixed with Duck Sauce’s “Barbra Streisand”) blared over the loudspeakers–even the usually stoic Vanessa Friedman (fashion editor at the Financial Times) tapped her foot and bobbed her head to the music.
The clothes matched the soundtrack in every way. Done in bright neons and stamped with rows of random letters that looked like an ethnic print from afar, it was every Color Me Bad fan’s dream. The rainbow colored necklaces were also jumbled alphabets, and everything was paired with the wedge sneakers.
All D&G needed this afternoon were arms full of slap bracelets. That would have put my inner 7-year-old over the moon.
