D&G kick-starts Milan Fashion Week with trendy menswear line
Jun '08
The most awaited Milan Fashion Week kicked-off with a blast on June 21 with duo Dolce & Gabbana taking a lead in exhibiting spring/summer 2009 menswear collection.

Dolce & Gabbana (D&G) collections took inspiration from oriental kimonos to don men in silk evening pyjamas for next summer.

This mesmerizing fashion extravaganza showcased the duo's signature line with a plethora of impeccable Asian style prints of dragons and butterflies on robes and shorts in black, white, grey, sepia and ivory.

The evening jackets were marvelously teamed with trousers sporting prints that evinced 'the relaxed lifestyle of the modern man'.

As always Dolce & Gabbana did wonder with a palette of natural colors ranging from dark blues to beige and browns for its line of formal striped suits and casual wear toped with dark-rimmed glasses.

One could also spot a religious use made of crocodile and suede for jackets and limited edition of sneakers.

Models were sighted flaunting python, crocodile, eel or patent leather sandals and slippers of assorted colors.

The informal line of D&G set to be exhibited tomorrow is also expected to spur an ambience of vivacity and freshness.

Christopher Bailey's 'Crumpled Classics' collection was next in line which reflected a casual mood with crumpled shirts, jackets, coats and hats.

Following this was Versace's no-or doubled collar jackets that used wings instead of buttons on the front of trenches. Donatella's collection themed 'formal attitude, informal mindset' met with rave reviews especially since he used new fabrics such as techno taffeta, a type of nylon with a modified structure that resembles washed silk, and left out check patterns.
