Dolce and Gabbana’s Fall 2021 men and women collections epitomized their backward-forward momentum – finding that perfect pit setting in the new world while preserving the house-recognized fashion styles.
Dressed now for a different flashlight and modes of seeing fashion, amidst the sparkling bulbs and walls of young commentators on monitors watching the proceedings, the Dolce and Gabbana perfectly tailored patchwork wool suit endured, as did the black corset dresses of the early 1990s, embellished for the Spring 2022 season.
Despite all the pivots to the now, far above the black velvet-covered social distanced seating of the audience below, the line up of large screens monitors showed a continuous loop of ‘Fatto a Mano’. The short video narrated the stages of cutting black laces into specific patterns and the assembling of the pieces into a black lace corset dress. Another montage demonstrated the process of hand-made leather high heels or the cutting of leather for a mauve double handle bag.
