With a disco mash-up soundtrack and super saturated color palette, one can only expect something young at heart from D&G. Last winter’s snow bunnies made way for a parade of models showing everything from the brand’s covetable knits to shrunken pencil skirts, all emblazoned with colorful letters.
Scattered over everything from silk blouses to Perspex necklaces, the block letters were seemingly random but the alphabet soup effect was effortlessly youthful, especially paired with the sneaker-heels we all love to hate. The D&G girl is always more playful than her more sexy sister and this season was no different.
The collection’s inspiration was murky but in terms of wearable pieces, this collection was a layer-queen’s dream. The finale was a candy-colored procession of models in letter print tops, again and again, with marabou feathered tutus. The collection certainly isn’t boundary pushing and won’t be making anyone’s top ten, but instinct says that emerging markets will scoop it up before you can say A, B, C.
