Due to factory shutdowns earlier this year, designers have had to get resourceful for Spring 2021Dolce & Gabbana exercised its thrifty muscle by showing a patchwork-heavy collection at Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday, complete with just about every fabric and pattern that exists. 

Each look resembled a DIY crafts project. There were stripes peppered with polka dots, which were then layered over floral brocade on something as simple as a pleated mini skirt; there were jeans that married denim and lace; there was a seemingly confused blazer that couldn't decide between leopard spots or a tropical palm print. 

The show notes indicate that the garments were sewn together by an artisan "in a distinctive way according to shapes and colors, allowing each piece of fabric to create its own story." The clashing result is somewhat fitting theme for an uncertain time.
