Something borrowed, something new, something "not" blue. An eye for what's ahead or what's already going speed forward, never forgetting the importance of a formal suit and tailoring. Are you caught in the net?
A fashion net, a metaphor for the youthful growth of the internet and its interaction with trends. An ouverture that lets the others inside our own personal story, inside our clothes, under our skin. Dolce&Gabbana's SS12 Men's Collection is by far the most conceptual one we have seen. It lets you wonder and ponder upon the crucial changes in our society and does what fashion knows best: express it daily by wearing the change.
Never forgetting what men's tailoring is about, keeping in mind the extreme mastery a garment needs in terms of attention and innovation, more focused on the cuts and materials than ever as taught by the most eligible dressing codes for the contemporary gentleman.
It's rigorous and perfected - no matter how many intricate works are done on the fabrics and shapes. Deconstructing, building new aesthetics, appealing to the young male as well as to the classic gentleman, offering new proportions for suits and jackets, playing with the lapels, letting us know there is always room for creation. Looking at, through the net, to be seen, as we are right here.
Summer nets on Bermuda shorts: leather. The sporty side of the collection to wear with a rucksack on the shoulder.
Wearing a net on your shoulders, not just any, a jacket, a bomber, a cardigan shaped, a trench with a hood. Perforated leather is the actual tailoring work.
Classic gentleman's informal style, netting is a must, perforated leather, in grey hues, as a blazer or a safari jacket.
New tailoring: the formal suits opt for a shorter jacket and a new fit for the trousers. The most important exclusive element is the mirrored low peak lapel.
Ton sur Ton, lined, layering. The netting lets us have a peak at the inside garment, either a t-shirt or a tank. The colours are dark, mostly purple and green, almost black.
Hello tracksuits, cotton, poplin, leather. It's the new ready to wear outfit: netted of course.
White Kimono Shirt: shirts must be exclusively white. It's all in the details: the sleeves, the elastic at the bottom, the collars.
Mirrored sunglasses add a touch of eclecticism and digital. Exclusive the new Miss Sicily for men. The shoes are in perforated leather. Perfect for the summer.
