The boys have gone into the woods and taken their woman there, but in the theatrical fairy tale fantasy way that only D&G know how. This seemed to me, to be the strongest move away from the obvious Italian Mediterranean influence that they are well known for, in quite a few seasons. Instead, this collection is a fusion of kitschy imagery and medieval cliches.
Excessive gilded embellished coats matched to the boots and gloves, with knights armour inspired shapes and chain metals making up the styling of the more ‘masculine’ options. Opposing to this was the girly flouncy embroidered applique pieces, complete with owls, squirrals and foxes which all adorned red riding hood style cloaks, suits and skirts. Naturally the show closed with the trademark swarm of D&G excess in glittery silvers and super shiny chain mail embroidered mini dresses, all just screaming ‘put me on a magazine cover’
