Dolce & Gabbana - #MFW Spring 2017

"With Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce's Spring collection, they brought in 20 "millennials." They also put on an energetic, democratic kids' performance - street dancers, up from Naples, who occupied the runway, in their own clothes with their wild fusion of hip-hop and the ancient bloodline heritage of the Neapolitan tarantella. What the young, flown-in audience saw on the runway - from the light-up heels to the multiple varieties of Alice-band headdresses - was calculated, of course, to connect with trophy-hunting kids on a budget. Also for them, the D&G logo t-shirts, an ironic reappropriation of the market-stall fakes. Pretty cleaver move, in the context of the cultural soup Vetements and others are swimming in. Nevertheless, this was a traditional show. After the real dancers, came the models, walking single file, not much smiling. What they wore demonstrated all of the values of this Italianate house, the printed sundresses, and the incredible embellishment of the sequined, toy soldier glittering military jackets." -
