D&G has gone print crazy this autumn, and the results are printastic- big, bold and beautiful. In a season where contrasts are de rigueur, the D&G girl is faced with two choices: girly and pretty or sexy and gritty. Which one will you go for?
The 80s inspired alphabet print on fluo background has a Katherine Hemnett- esque feel, which lends the whole collection a funky, punk touch. The lettering set in horizontal lines lend themselves perfectly for layering and playing with the silhouette. Over a mibi length chiffon skirt layer a skin-tight mini in wool jacquard and a belt to define your waist. Add texture as well as volume to your outfit.
Boxy cropped sweaters and boyfriend style jackets are the ideal tools to play with proportions. Shrunken wool minis, leather shorts, tights and leggings all serve to one end- layering and texture. Complement your experiments with shape by sticking to one print.
On the reverse side of the D&G print portfolio, lies the Daisy motif. Romantic and youthful, this print fulfils the need of the equally fashion conscious but less daring D&G fans. Daisy printed chiffon in bold hues like green and red satisfy the need for bright colours. The Daisy print looks hand painted, lending the whole collection a craftsmanship feel.
The Daisy print collection has a definite neo hippy quality to the overall silhouette. Strapless denim dresses and cute playsuits complement an assortment of bootleg jeans and flowing ankle length dresses.
Alphabet prints have contaminated accessories too. Add another dimension to your layering and mix and matching with the D&G printed platform sneakers. The bright canvas high tops with white rubber toecaps finish off that eighties funky style, just add a round purse or an oversize clutch and you’re ready to roll.
