The Start of Milan Fashion Week: Dolce & Gabbana Menswear

Thankfully, this time round I managed to watch live streaming of the Burberry menswear show and along with most of the fashion world I realised that velvet will be big next year for men. I was surprised the word 'velvet' didn't trend on twitter. Yet, that's not what I'll be talking about. As you might have noticed, I am more of the Dolce & Gabbana type of girl (do not think of fake D&G belts at street markets, please - Dolce & Gabbana is another brand altogether to D&G, anyhow).

Dolce & Gabbana are THE kings of Black and Gold, intricate lace detailing and baroque allusions. Milan Fashion Week opened with Dolce & Gabbana along with Jil Sander, Burberry Prorsum, Roberto Cavalli (photos are being published live on NOWFASHION at this very moment) and a few others. Dolce & Gabbana has been my preferred collection so far. I felt it kind of alluded to Autumn/Winter 2010 women's collection - that show will always remain one of my favourites.

Velvet played a predominant part, once again (Cavalli update - it also made a presence in the Cavalli show -sorry about this sudden outburst, but as I said, I'm watching live photo streaming of the Roberto Cavalli show).

I especially loved the intricate detailing on the jackets! I'm also glad wine is here to stay...

There was a bit of a pygama party going on. Can't decide if I like or not. It was big in fashion this season, in women's wear. I guess it's kind of a hot geek kind of thing, especially with those specs. Yum. [I have to say I prefer Italian choice of models over British any time...]. And they're wearing pjs!!!

The intricate detailing on the coats was superb - it almost looks like you're stuck in some Italian baroque church in Milan - in a good way. The Milanese heritage was eminent in these looks - I love a brand true to its roots, just like Burberry with the British heritage aura...

The collection was elegant, sophisticated and well-executed, the Dolce & Gabbana way.
