Posts Tagged ‘D&G’

D&G’s collection this season was all about the red gingham print reminiscent of summer picnics and Eastern European-style head scarves.I ADORE gingham and headscarves, but  not the Mom Jeans in picture four.I really like how D&G picks a theme ever season and sticks with it throughout the collection.Two images ( and a  few voices, but we won’t go there) came to my head when I saw this collection:

Seriously, though, you can totally just get this Spontaneous Picnic Dress and call it day. I’d wear that to a Ponderosa buffet and call it my eatin’ dress. Anyway, yay for D&G!

Artist Peter Gronquist pimped his weapons ‘couture-style’ by putting logos on everything from chainsaws to uzis. Quick question: If you get mugged by someone with one of these guns, would you drool and swoon before dropping your wallet or would you still be scared sh*tless? For me, I would try to get into that ‘cool equipment’ banter and try to convince the mugger that I’m ‘on his side’ and stuff and maybe even suggest holding up someone less fashionable- ‘ya know what I mean? Actually, I’d probably run. Anyway,  I can totally picture Donatella Versace’s bodyguards toting a Versace machine gun while she chain smokes under the scorching Miami sun. Check out Peter’s site for other fupe stuff including a Mickey Mouse Jesus and a fruity Darth Vader.

I love how Dolce &Gabanna alway come up with a theme for their D&G line. A few seasons ago it was a nautical theme; now they head for the mountains for that snow bunny look. I don’t do any winter sports ( or any sports for that matter), but I can always appreciate watching skiers and snowboarders falling on their asses for me while I sip hot chocolate in the chalet. Why ski when you can watch people ski, right? Anyway, The boots make it for me, though. You can’t beat a pair of Harry and the Henderson boots to make any winter outfit look wintery. I love how D&G go from knits to nighties in one show. Like one would wear a flimsy nightie in the mountains. They should’ve done flannel PJ’s- Eddie Bauer style because that’s the truth. The dress is beautiful, though, nonetheless.

Usually, when you mention anything Renaissance, images of the tacky King’s Richard’s Faire conjure up in your head. As soon as I found out you had to wait in a line to pay to get Coins and then stand in another  line again to pay with the Coins for food, I was seriously disappointed. It really was the Renaissance! That and also the cloaked deep, dark, depressed, zit-faced boy behind me.  But anyway,  amazingly, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana pull the look off looking anything but tacky. With an Operatic air, these dresses are fit for anyone at any age (granted you have nice legs).  I love the first outfit the best. The last photo shows a fur shawl that I adore- It looks like something out of  The Tudors… or the Flintstones. I still eat Flintstone vitamins along with my son. The purple are the best. Anyway, I always confuse Versace with D&G. I think Versace is more like cougar-wear. D&G is waaaaaay better.

D&G Sail Away….


D&G ‘s Spring 2009 line consisted of familiar nautical themes as their previous Spring line, but this time it had more of a 1940’s flair to it. I adore the Chanel style suits in red and white stripes and the high waisted sailor pants. These  classic outfits are worthy of any yacht, that is if you can get to a yacht. If not, the ferry or sidewalk will do as these pieces are very wearable for everyday living.
