Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 Collection
Walked out to a sound track of Sophia Loren singing “Mambo Italiano,” and featuring insane prints of pasta, eggplants, tomatoes and peppers, not to mention garlic earrings, Domenico and Stefano gave the world a big old helping of Italian kitsch. The mood is fun and sexy and colorful. Paired with those eye-popping prints were sheers and lace, of which we’re pretty tired, but we have to admit that pale blue floral lace is really pretty. A lot of designers have been over-using the lace lately and that could easily be laid at Dolce & Gabbana’s feet, but it’s not their fault they’re masters at it and so many others are just following their lead. The beaded, fringed looks at the end have a pseudo-sixties feel without being literal about it. Fun, continental, and ready for a party.
