Dolce & Gabbana: Ready-to-Wear SS18

After all that, black is best. The Dolce & Gabbana boys opened with it – a stream of black frocks, the ones that the boys do best – you know them – lean, revealing and totally sexy, corseted but not restrictive, all sheer lace and wafts of Visconti and Sophia Loren. Basically, they were good, and would have been a satisfying show in itself, but lucky us – that was just the starter. Good analogy, actually – show proper starts (lots of colour, blousier shapes, jacquard suiting, crowns – all very good, all very Dolce) and there’s food – food prints, dotted over the collection – peas, slices of fruit, fish, rolls of cannoli. So good news. Eating’s in. Time to gorge.
