Masculine versus feminine was a strong theme for next season, but there was no show by far, where it gained as much prominence as in Dolce & Gabbana. Stars were the leitmotif of the collection, used either as the shape of the jewellery, or prints on the collection’s mannish suits and chiffon dresses. The silhouettes could be divided into two styles – long and slouchy or knee-skimming and bodycon. While the first part of the show delved very much into the masculine – think oversized blazers, trilbies and pleated pants – the second was a serious nod to Dolce & Gabbana’s signature waist-cinched aesthetic. And just like in the previous seasons, lace underwear was peeking from underneath the dresses – one proof that you can be practical and still pull off those seductive clothes.
