Dolce & Gabbana Men Spring/Summer 2013

If there’s one thing we can expect from Dolce & Gabbana, it’s a full-throated celebration of all things Italian. For Spring 2013, Domenico and Stefano went for broke, with a glorious invocation of the former’s Sicilian heritage full of luminous sailor stripes and intricate painting prints. Shown on a cast of real-life inhabitants of the island off the southern tip of Italy, the clothes had a simple elegance that felt like a fresh new direction for a label better known for intricate embroidery and a penchant for the trappings of athletics. These were pieces that felt very real, directly linked to a not-so-distant past that can still be seen today in the small towns along the Mediterranean. There was a lightness to the collection, with its soothing, predominantly gray palette, that made you appreciate the personal history that is so often lost in fashion when designers pull inspiration from artists long-dead or eras long-past. It was like looking through a yellowing family photo album, with boys headed home in their school clothes and men dressed up for a trip to the mainland. And all the while the band—dressed in shirtsleeves and traditional red sashes—played on.

    The very sad moment in one’s life when 10 year-olds walk down one of fashion’s most major mens shows before your 16 year old self. :/ *sigh*

    I like some of the shoes, the bags were nice. But the video to this has to be seen xD
    It was too good.

    I think lasts seasons they’ve been pushing-taking their “heritage” way too far!! it’s becoming boring and repetitive…i’d rather have back the old Dolce&Gabbana almost vulgar-glam back than this “new” boring thing they’re dining so far.

    Poor models – not only celebs but now even ordinary people are stealing your jobs.
