Strike four for the Italian Maison: first lace, then leopard, we hear corsets, now it's nets. Ready to start fishing in the archives from some extra-sensual inspiration?
First fashion memory I have of nets belongs to Toulous Lautrec's Can Can Girls. Fish-nets allowing the flesh to come out arrongantly to the touch. One cannot forget the scene from Piano Lessons: the pleasure a man gets from a hole in her socks.
Are we too modern to retrieve that memory? Seduction at its best: parcels of flesh elegantly and audaciously trapped in the net. Women fishing for their seduction or women playing hide and seek?
Dolce&Gabbana are the masters of seduction, at least fashion teaches us so. Theferore please take note, you need a little bit of lace, some animal prints, a corset, and of courses nets and crochet. Unfinished looks only help give way to imagination. As we all know imagination is what it takes to seduce.
Throughout the years and the collections, Dolce&Gabbana show their expertise in allowing nets to prevail elegantly.
Isabella Rossellini sporting the beloved net, classy and effective, the net takes over sheer transparencies.
A softer version of the net: crochet. Somewhat vintage and secure, the crochet reminds us of tradition and roots. Feminine and revealing.
