Milan Mens Shows: Dolce & Gabbana

Leave it to Dolce & Gabbana to do excess in hard times. The D&G man, they told, “tends to be unhindered by emotional or family ties, and is therefore free to fritter away his income on himself.” He is the type of man that dons velvet suits and “petrol-blue pants.. accompanied a chunky navy knit” simply to spite convention. D&G is not the first show to velvet this week – Burberry did it also – but they may be the only ones to do with such eccentricity and pizzazz. Tim Blanks suggests that they’re drawing on the movies of Rosselini, but we think Stefano and Domenico are looking to reinvent the mafioso look, much like Gomorrahas reinvented the mafioso movie.
