D&G Spring 2012

Yesterday I attended my first and final D&G presentation. Sadly, this Spring 2012 collection will be the last D&G collection as the designers will be focusing on strengthening and expanding their signature line.

Dolce & Gabbana’s kid sister went out with a bang.

Bold, contrasting prints dominated the runway of this glamorous, feminine collection which is the most colourful, eclectic and fun presentation I’ve seen this Fashion Week.

The only solid pieces are a white shirt, two knit sweaters and a denim pant suit.

The silhouettes ranged from flowy dresses of various lengths with handkerchief hemlines, to ultra-short fitted mini dresses, which I’m placing bets on Fergie being the first to wear on the red carpet.

We also saw sexy shorts, bloomers, cropped tops, printed pants, tunics and a finale of maxi dresses.

The fabulous, eclectic prints with nods to the 90s were teamed with satin print wedges and gold gladiator flats.

Other key accessories included oversized straw hats, which I immediately pictured on Kimora Lee Simmons, charm bracelets, satin print wedges, minaudières, fold-over clutches, tassel-accent quilted bags and lots of ghetto gold jewellery.

Favourites: Paisley print top with floral print shorts and printed shirt and matching pants

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Fergie, Kimora Lee Simmons, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Jessie J and Shingai Shoniwa

    Totally gorgeous–the fabrics are sop rich and luxe. With a few exceptions i would take any piece home if only I had the legs for them (and the money). I especially like the shorts with the tunic tops.

    I can also picture Nicole Richie and Jessica Alba in these dresses

    As I see it, Dolce and Gabbana has drawn too much inspiration on Gianni Versace. It’s a vulgar fake.

        Look at the fourth look and compare it to the last collection by Atelier Versace.

    I thought D&G was the same thing as Dolce & Gabbana.

      D&G is the lower priced line.

      Like Emporio Armani, and Armani Exchange are the lower priced Armani labels.
