Spring 2012: D&G

Go big or go home was the definitive message decorating the final D&G catwalk—today, the designers announced the discontinuation of the collection. To the blaring beats of Prince and James Brown, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana sent out part wild child deb, part gypsy look-a-likes in an array of print-on-print ensembles, riffing on 101 ways to wear a silk kerchief. Here, a demure pocket square or dainty head scarf was rendered in loud and proud rompers, barely-there briefs, denim ‘n’ silk button-downs, and contrasting tube dresses. An unmistakable 60s flavor prevailed in riotous shifts and flirty, tie-front babydolls. Flowing gypsywear dresses garnered the most attention from front-rowers, running the gamut from the off-the-shoulder peasant types to the empire-waist mashups--four prints deep, of course. A fine farewell of the most ebullient, and decidedly D&G, proportions.
