A number of brands come to mind when you think of Milan. Whether you really know fashion or not you know a lot of the top brands are foreign and hail from Europe. However there a few brands who compare and compete with the dynasty of Dolce & Gabbana. Twice a year people from all over the globe walk, fly, and/or img_9757sit and wait for Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to deliver their collection for the season. No matter the notion of what we can’t expect, but what we know we can expect. What’s that? A ton of looks; I say “ton” because unlike most brands out there the Dolce & Gabbana show always come with 100 or more plus looks. I think I perhaps one time saw a collection from them with looks in the 90’s; still if you compare that to other brands who only produce lets say 40 looks a collection that is a ton. Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2017 menswear collection was titled “PRINCE“. Are they paying homage to the late icon or is it simply a collection based of a prince of some sort? To answer that it was neither or those reasonings, but the “PRINCE” themed referred to the Prince’s of Social Media. When viewing the collection you come across some familiar faces who thrive outside of the modeling world. YouTube and Instagram influencers took over this show. The entireimg_9758 line up was about 50/50 between signed models, and the lucky ones I mentioned before. I’ll never quite understand how these two  men craft up such extravagant looks each season all while keeping them different from the last. Perhaps, this is what makes Dolce & Gabbana; Dolce & Gabbana. Maybe the two men split the looks in half that way it’s not 112 looks on one guy. What’s also interesting to note is that the shows special guest; people such as Luka Sabbat were able to pick out what they wanted to wear. Giving this new generation a new range of power. What is most appreciated for this brand is the reach they have. Dolce & Gabbana isn’t a brand that is stuck in one gear. No, they often switch as you can see from the images above. Looks can go from extremely upscale and tailored to extremely relaxed. How does one going from a silk robe with satin lapels to a patchwork puffer jacket with slides. Is this what keeps Dolce & Gabbana so fresh? The ability to target all audiences?
