D&G for fall winter have brought to the fore the layered look. Typically young, sexy and fun, the collection challenges occasion wear to the max.
Trainers are flat, parkas are made of nylon, and chiffon skirts are matched to feminine camisoles. Wrong. For F/W 2011, D&G have turned these basic notions upside down and created an infinitely sexy and contemporary collection centred on layering and sportswear.
Bomber Jacket €475, Dress €1245, Sneakers €285, Belt €115, Necklace €285
Typically D&G, the maxi dress in letter print chiffon is matched to a cropped satin bomber jacket. The bomber jacket is usually connected to sportswear, yet the luxurious and feminine material transforms it into a luxurious item which can work as evening wear. Same goes for the sneakers. High-tops are generally reserved for daywear, but D&G created a version with wedges, the perfect accessory to finish off the luxe sportswear trend.

The silk hoodie with slightly risqué v neck is a perfect match to the sensual flowing chiffon skirt.
Parka €4500, Dress €1795, Sneakers €285, Necklace €285
The sporty parka was totally revolutionised by D&G this FW. In a luxurious satin and fur version, this glamorous and feminine coat is now the perfect partner for a chiffon and sequined evening dress.
