Dolce & Gabbana F/W 2011

Eccentric tailoring at Dolce & Gabbana. Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana displayed an eccentric touch by re-tailoring classic pieces infusing a modern edge into their fall collection. Adding to the eccentric theme there was also a nod to the 1970's glam English musician Bryan Ferry with icon t-shirts that displayed his album artwork. In the purple and black pave-sequined tuxedo jackets Ferry's personal style was also prevalent and clearly similar to pieces he would wear while performing with the Roxy music. Taking a new direction from last season's Sicilian influence the design duo displayed an edgy modern take on English tailoring. The color palette of the collection mostly consisted of black and grays with eccentric touches of purple and red. A floral red print was also injected into various pieces such as the leather bomber jacket, a tailored suit, tuxedo jackets and distressed jeans. The tailoring of the clothes were modern with fitted jackets and low-rise multi-pocketed pants suitable for a younger audience. The Dolce & Gabbana look was a edgy modern take on Oliver Twist.

The event was held at Dolce & Gabbana Metropol theater on Viale Piave in Milan. The soundtrack for the show was from Bryan Ferry's Roxy music. English model Guy Robinson opened the show in a light gray vertical stripe double breasted jacket with matching low slung trousers. The jackets were tailored and cropped to perfection. The tailoring and fit of every piece had a casual touch with distressed jeans paired with a classic tuxedo jacket. The collection channeled English tailoring with a hint of an eccentric touch of a youthful attitude.

Admired pieces in the collection were the pave-sequined tuxedo jackets that were offered in purple and black. A leather bomber jacket that came in basic red and red floral print was incredibly unique and adored by the editors and stylist. The Bryan Ferry icon t-shirts will be greatly adored by the Dolce & Gabbana customers. The fur jackets were definitely the next season's must have pieces for men.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana displayed a collection that infused a eccentric modern touch to the fall collection. They had a great amount of practical wearable pieces but this season it was aimed at a younger clientele. The Dolce & Gabbana man is young and edgy this next winter season. -Brent Billiman reporting from Milan, Italy.
