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.
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!
So, which look is your favourite? And do you think Dolce & Gabbana shall find enough brave souls to understand and adopt their style – or will these looks never leave the runway? See more FW2021 looks in our gallery at the end of the article!
