Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall show was what fairy-tale’s are made of. “Today, every girl wants to be a princess,” Stefano Gabbana asserted at a preview. “Today, everything is possible for the young generation!”
Dolce & Gabbana found new roles for some of their familiar pieces. The fitted midi dress turned a tinsel pale blue for Cinderella; raw-edged Houndstooth tweed coats and suits became her scullery maid “before” clothes; the black lace “widow” dresses converted ideally to wicked stepmother-wear; the formal menswear tailoring attired Prince Charming; and lots of gold-frogged and tailcoat military jackets outfitted a toy soldier army from The Nutcracker.
“We know how the world is today. Fashion makes people dream—this is the service fashion gives,” Gabbana concluded.
