Dolce & Gabanna Girl

I was very surprised with the route that Dolce and Gabanna took for their summer 09 women's collections. The Italian duo are ususally know for their very sexy commercial style clothing. However, thing time their clothes seemed far more avant garde look that would usually come from McQueen or Viktor and Rolf. The key theme for this collect is: volume, volume, volume, usually in the shoulders and the skirts. Even though I love his collection's edgey look, its probably best suited toward women of slender and tall frame otherwise it would make you look fat and paunchy. The same thing at Versace, Dolce and Gabanna decided to use lots of balcks and white with a little bit of flower and metalic-like colours. Their shirts seem to have a komono wrap style to them which to me resembled more of a house robe than an outdoor top. I absolutely loved their bags and shoes that they had this season, it was beautifully done and over the top but not costumey. Unfortunately their necklaces and belts were a bit culky and seemed a little to Mr. T. All in all it was an inventive collection by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabanna.
