Models wear designs from Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall/Winter 2022-2023 fashion collection, which was revealed at Milan Fashion Week. Sharon Stone has sat admiringly at Dolce & Gabbana, Rihanna, and A$AP Club shows thus far this week. At Prada, Rocky wore Gucci, and Kim Kardashian wore Prada.
There was a sense of return to a new normal, one that now included the war on Europe’s eastern frontier, after two years of the digital-physical mixture, social distancing, and travel restrictions that kept many overseas buyers and editors away. On Saturday, tens of thousands of people marched for peace in Milan’s central Piazza Duomo, which weekend shoppers and fashionistas crisscrossed.
Whatever the real-life persona, sexiness is the keyword of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s latest collection. Sheer stockings with garters are the season’s mainstay, peeking out of low skirts, sheer lace skirts, and even, bizarrely, one-legged trousers. Yes, it appears that in the D&G metaverse, innovation will be rewarded.
Corsets emerged as silky outlines on fitting black dresses, tops, and jackets and defining the shape of several coats and outfits. Sleek fitting tops and leggings with shiny finishes were worn under cutout dresses and skirts to help you transition from one universe to the next. Stilettos and oversized 3-D-style sunglasses completed the look. A series of pod-like clothes — coats, jackets, and knitwear — designed to be worn protectively over the head, almost like a nun’s habit — also displayed offbeat humor.
Together with Sam Webb, Lady Kitty Spencer, Adam Senn, and rapper Gunna, Sharon Stone sat in the front row. As they passed, she nodded appreciatively, mouthing “Gorgeous” at a strappy fake fur black dress and “Wow” at a fuzzy white number.
The designers recently declared that they would no longer be using fur this year but would continue to collaborate with furrier artisans on synthetic substitutes to retain the quality of their work.
Every Marni look emerged from nowhere, on an unclear runway inside a deserted warehouse with filthy floors and overgrown flora at Milan Fashion Week.
The fashions walked as though surprised by the gang, each led by a hooded torchman in a uniform of drooping hems and spikey plastic sneakers.
