Milan show report: D&G goes to the Wild West

25 September 2009

Following last season’s Grand Opera theme, D&G now takes us on a Wild West adventure with the Spring Summer collection. Urban cowgirls mixed denim, masculine pinstripe suits, suede and perforated leather with romantic lace and chiffon. It was a denim extravaganza, featuring strapless corseted dresses with tiered full skirts, high-waisted shorts, cowboy shirts, jumpsuits, and of course jeans: faded, tattered and bleached.

The D&G boys added in a coquettish mix of suede bustier dresses, tiered chiffon skirts and frothy ruffles, brilliantly accessorised with waist cinching tan leather buckle belts and of course cowboy boots, be they calf length with Cuban heels or knee length with cascades of fringes. It’s time to saddle up ladies, yee hah!
