Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2011
With every other model wearing a variation of a double-breasted black jacquard jacket with matching trousers cropped right below the knee, a porkpie hat, and oxfords, it seemed that for Dolce and Gabbana, masculine is the new feminine for Fall 2011. But while that may be true, the designers really were just playing with a hot trend in fashion these days- feminine, but masculine.
The show progressed alternating between one boy look, one girl. On the "fellas": crisp shirts, low-slung pants, boxy vests, bright sequined evening jackets, and fur coats inset with stars. And for the gals: plenty of sheaths, plus corset dresses and billowy floor-length numbers in bigger star patterns, lace motifs, and musical-note prints.As one can see, I was more intrigued by the "male" pieces. Should I be embarrassed to say I would wear most of them?
