Wrap up warm in cosy knitwear this winter. Luxurious kits all rigorously horizontally striped represented the vast majority of the casual vein in the Dolce&Gabbana FW11 eccentric menswear collection.
Who said that stripes were nautical? For many seasons, fashion has interpreted stripes in the summer collections with a marine feel. Red and white or blue and white shirts teamed with shorts or white cropped trousers flooded the summer collections lending them a nautical inspired look.
For FW11, Dolce&Gabbana, to maintain the eccentric key to the collection, present a wide variety of striped knitwear, more inspired by a slightly dark gondolier than an all American squeaky-clean sailor.

A sleek yet iconographic eccentric look. Team a cotton jersey t-shirt with maroon and grey stripes to baggy rusty jeans.
V Neck Jumper €195, Shirt €355, Trousers €235, Boots €645
For a splash of colour, layer over a plaid shirt this thin horizontal red and grey v-neck jumper. The cropped flannel trousers and work boots lend the look an urban feel
T Shirt €315, Patchwork Pants €845, Boots €625, Suspenders €295
