Dolce & Gabbana Milan 2011.12 – Milan Fashion Week with Francisco Lachowski

Frizzante! Buzzy fun has always been the serving suggestion of D&G. The audience members may be the type to sip Coca-Cola Light, but Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana know a big-flavored, high-calorie kindred spirit when they see one. Echo the shirt that opened the show, blaring a commandment that would repeat: “Enjoy Coca-Cola!”
Dolce & Gabbana Milan 2011.12 Full Show
There was a schoolyard cast to the collection, with its fitted blazers, repp ties, and corduroys. Those cords came in the same curious shape explored at the Dolce & Gabbana show earlier in the week: low rise, drop-crotch, and pegged skinny through the leg. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say things had a truant tinge, since these were clothes that likely as not would get your knuckles rapped in class. You’d have to be brash to try, as the collection’s notes had it, “the whole color palette,” with brilliant blues, yellows, and grassy greens piled on all at once. Dolce and Gabanna even designed their own Day-Glo take on the ultimate young man’s accessory: casket headphones, made in collaboration with Skullcandy.
