Dolce & Gabbana Spring-Summer 2017

The parade of Dolce & Gabbana is one of the most anticipated of the Fashion Week in Milan, “Tropic Italiano” is the name with which they have named their latest creation.

However if it could be considered an ode to Italian cuisine: ice cream, pizza and spaghetti shaped the print dresses, skirts and shirts.

Without innovate much in the courts: strong silhouettes that celebrate femininity, dresses stand type sack, which in contrast do little to enhance the woman’s body and fall straight.

To the already printed traditions of flowers, polka dots and black lace, denim garments coated beads, colorful military inspired jackets with matching mini skirts and baggy pants suits tailor join.

Retro print is back

 

This season, the timeless polka dot has been filtered through a fresh fashion lens if not wholly transformed. Far from its syrupy, cliché roots it seems the ubiquitous icon has seen a coming of age to make an unapologetically bold mark on modern style.

While the print may not necessarily stand out season after season, just like the modest stripe, it’s continually there in some capacity; that is until now. Autumn/Winter 2016 has pushed the print into the spotlight proving that polka dots are back in a big way.

Marc Jacobs, Saint Laurent and MSGM all opted for a contemporary take on the classic black and white spot elevating it to more stylish and rebellious heights. While Marc Jacobs elected gothy elongated silhouettes and mishmash of different sizes and textures, Saint Laurent and MSGM injected their collections with a shot of scarlet red.
