Dolce & Gabbana
Spring-Summer 2012 – If it wasn’t Prada setting the trends, it was Dolce & Gabbana. Amidst the fairy lights that decked the catwalk, the vegetable patch blossomed. Sound strange? Well it won’t do after you’ve seen the array of vegetables that donned the catwalk: tomatoes, onions, red peppers, beetroot and courgette’s were displayed flamboyantly onto skirts, tops, bloomers and coats. The two piece outfit was the order of the day, form fitting bras dominated and were paired with either bloomers , tiny shorts or high-waist A-line skirts. Whilst some bejeweled skirts glistened down the catwalk, dirndl skirts gave a nod to the fifties. The image was strengthened by the adorning whicker baskets and voluptuous dresses. Appliqué flowers accompanied the vegetables, engulfing necklines or making up an entire coat. The finale dresses purported the glamour that is Dolce & Gabbana. Stunning black dresses were encrusted and enveloped with jewels that sparkled. The collection had its finger on the fashion pulse.
