The number one Italian fashion duo has lately been very playful thinking outside the box when creating their men’s fashion lines. SS09 daunted with suit pants held to the waist using strings, mimicking what men might wear at the gym, and that sport effect was highlighted even more as the eyes roll down to the bottom where there are legs are cuffed. Experimental clothing like that ought to score the bearer major kudos at high-end health clubs in Kensington where women spend more time getting tanned and applying make-up to their faces before arriving to the health clubs than exercising.
Trendy playboys around the world have a reason to launch a countdown for autumn as Dolce & Gabbana’s flagship piece in their FW09 is kilted blazers. A few slurps of Jack Daniels followed by 5 cartwheels won’t stop the mind from rejecting what can be described as atrociously bizarre creations. When one has passed the stages of denial and acceptance, the blazer start to look interesting and become worth taking a second look at. The full circus with trousers is a bit too much for the stomach to digest but as sports coats they blazers can actually work in real life. With some slight padding, a double breasted one wouldn’t be too crazy as a summer jacket. But as formal wear there is more desire since the kilt pattern result in a heavy-duty appearance preventing the blazers from looking right at a cocktail party where everyone is dressed in sleek and glamour figure shaped tuxedos.
