- Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana brought sequins, crystals, metallics, fringed dresses and thigh-high denim boots to the luxury brand’s #DG Light show
- Echoing the 2000s, when the maison dramatically broke away from minimalist trends, the glitzy collection is a call to ‘leave behind the darkness’ of Covid-19
Glitter lit up the catwalk at Dolce & Gabbana’s Milan fashion show on Saturday, September 25, with the designer duo peppering their spring/summer 2022 women’s collection with sparkling, sequinned blouses and rock-studded miniskirts and trousers.
The #DG Light show, which was held in a disco-like atmosphere with glimmering mirrors as a backdrop, also featured black biker jackets and camouflaged overcoats, cargo pants worn with crystal-encrusted tops, and fringed gold and silver dresses.
Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana incorporated elements seen in previous collections, such as embroidery, lace, flowers, animalier prints, bras, corsets and tight black dresses. Some jackets had large, butterfly-like shoulders, while accessories included thigh-high denim boots.
The creative pair said on the sidelines of the presentation they had drawn inspiration from the early 2000s, when their exuberant designs broke with the dominant minimalist style.
The show was one of the last big events of Milan Fashion Week, which ran until Monday, September 27, and hosted both in-person events and digital presentations following virtual editions in February due to the pandemic.
