Dolce & Gabbana, Milan’s Newest Power House

It is no secret that the new commercial powerhouse in Milan, next to the old hero Giorgio Armani, are the Sicilian-rooted designers Dolce & Gabbana.

Dolce & Gabbana sent out such an overwhelming and impressive line up of fantastic men’s clothes for fall-winter 2007 that one can just imagine their commercial division smacking their lips. These clothes will undoubtedly make the register ring at Dolce & Gabbana stores as well as retailers all over the world.

The creative duo leaves absolutely no area of great men’s dressing untouched. There were some of the best two-button lean tailoring suits in shades of gold and brown in the finale of the show; there was incredible knitwear on some poncho-looking oversized sweaters; there was high tech garb as in the opening - a clear homage to space age and the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey; and there were super stiff and classy jeans, amazing grey patent leather dress shoes and to top it, super snug leather bombers.

Justin Timberlake supplied the tunes, just as he did in their Las Vegas-inspired recent women’s show and the models looked like modern day heroes as they ran down the runway in beautifully cut grey suits, a tour de force in men’s tailoring. We saw single-breasted, double-breasted, four-button, one button and two-button suits. The styling idea was to leave the lower button open and the rest was properly buttoned up to make for a stunning silhouette.

They may be very fond of mega parties, but these two designers are constantly pushing to better and develop their line. Most notably, denim is no longer torn and used and washed with all kinds of stickers and buttons sewn on. Instead, they have restrained themselves to a simple metallic plate embossed with their names on the back pocket. A classy move. Yet they were still their hedonistic selves when they send out a skimpy bathing suit on a hunky guy in a fall-winter show.
