The Italian duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana surely know how to draw attention. One day it’s sixpack-flaunting topless models, next time an Elvis Presley-themed fashion show or men in lipstick and metallic colours, draped in furs or wild animal prints. The new FW2021 collection is extravagant to the max, with intergenerational links, a mixture of styles and, above all, freedom of expression in the main role.

The power of youth

At first glance, the FW2021 collection looks straight out of a teenage fashion catalogue. A rich colour palette, ranging from pink to purple to neon yellow, baseball caps, chains, bombers, sneakers, metallic outfits, knit turtlenecks or a fuzzy pink sweatsuit – all these elements might make you think that Domenico and Stefano are now targetting generations younger by a decade or two. And why wouldn’t they, since a great share of those in their 40s can only dream about the incomes of some Gen Z-ers. That’s not the point of this collection, though.

A touch of elegance

In this collection, Dolce & Gabbana strive to connect different generations, and even though teenage styles still prevail, here and there you may stumble upon a luxurious, minimalist suit, a basic cotton top, a stylish coat or straight-leg pants you won’t be afraid to wear in a business meeting or at a dinner date in a high-end restaurant.

Dolce & Gabbana vs. winter

The upcoming fall/winter season is going to be even tougher than this year's – according to Dolce & Gabbana anyway. The fashion house is stocking up in luxury quilted jackets and furs able to withstand even the harshest of winters.

No rules!

Which style element shall play a major role in the next fall/winter season? The answer is accessories! Hats, belts or bags adorned with a bold D&G logo will be all the rage, together with chain-suspended sunglasses, strikingly elegant berets or men’s handbags of all sizes, shapes and colours. Even footwear shall know no limits. Metallic snow boots? Fuzzy slides? Their time is coming!

Hearing Dolce & Gabbana I can’t help but remember their Sex and the City fashion show, where Carrie Bradshaw, wearing nothing but sparkly nude panties and a revealing blue coat takes a fall right on the catwalk. However, being Carrie, she musters the courage to get back up and keep going – just as always. And courage is exactly what you need, if you’re planning to go out in the new Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2021 menswear collection, which is anything but plain.

The "Justin Bieber"

All I see in this picture is Justin Bieber, nonchalantly humming his catchy song "Yummy" as he walks by. I love sweatsuits and oversized clothing, and in this rendition, I don’t even mind that obnoxious pink colour. Although it might be too much for some, I call it cool.

The crazy nonsense

What an abomination! If my Mr. Right showed up on a date wearing this, I’d be running for the hills. I can’t even imagine anyone wearing this genuinely. Perhaps Daniel Nekonečný going clubbing in heaven, but that’s about it.

The "Go minimalism!"

This minimalistic outfit is my cup of tea exactly. I don’t really think a guy needs to pair it with lipstick as this model does, but then again, as part of a fashion show, it’s kinda cool. There’s nothing to criticize – this look simply hits just right.

The So Bad It's Good

This creation reminds me of the freezing temperatures outside – in an outfit like this, cold has nothing on you. As for the design and shape, this look would certainly turn heads even in Prague. Too much for me, but maybe an absolute Wow factor for some.

The Raffaello eye candy

Mmm... this makes me crave some Raffaello candies! I’m enjoying this outfit, and I believe a lot of men would look great in it. The old adage of "Less is more" holds true once again. If there’s one thing I have a soft spot for, it’s shoes. And these are just amazing! Maybe I’d just curb the bling around the model‘s neck, as that’s not every guy’s thing.

What’s my conclusion for the Dolce & Gabbana FW2021 collection? It’s original, extravagant and timeless. However, some outfits are virtually unwearable, or at least I would never wear them... if I were a man, that is. Still, occasionally you’ll catch a glimpse of the applauded minimalism, so even I would have something to choose from. And I’d definitely delve into some of the more daring looks as well – it’s clothes that make the man, after all. So if you want to stand out from the crowd, Dolce & Gabbana is just the thing for you.
