While we bask in the Summer sun, take a quick moment to feel the chill of D&G's Fall ad campaign. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana hired a gaggle of gorgeous male and female models, dressed them up in the chicest of gear, albeit not ski-friendly, and snapped away, while they froze away. Although it's crazy to stand in snowy 'scapes in sheer clothes, I love the idea of fusing ready-to-wear with ski-wear. It's insanely cool — the oversize goggles, skis, and boots are playing nice with ruffles, knits, and suits. Do you agree?
Spring's head-to-toe denim trend will still be going strong well into the summer months with pieces like Hannah MacGibbon's denim triangle bikini for Chloé and Alber Elbaz's pom-pom sandals for Lanvin hitting stores in the coming weeks. Miu Miu has our favorite back-to-the-'80s chain-strap handbag, while Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana do distressed denim just right for D&G.
The Winter Olympics ends on Sunday, and I, for one, will miss it. But D&G has brightened my mood with its Alpine-tastic Fall collection. Sure there's loads of Nordic prints, but it's not a complete cozy fest: sheer moody florals, incognito lace and silk dresses, tufts of fur, and velvet separates inject mountain mystic. Glittery ski goggles and stompy fur boots have DIY written all over them . . . here are my top 10 looks.
This Friday Giorgio Armani will kick things off with a live stream of his Emporio Armani collection on the new Emporio Armani website at 10:30AM EST. Later in the day (1:45PM EST), Jil Sander will showcase the fall collection at jilsander.com, and on Saturday Giorgio Armani presents his main runway show at 8:15AM EST exclusively on Vogue Italy's website.
Meanwhile Dolce & Gabbana takes things a step further, not only offering shows live on the website and Facebook page, but also optimizing the video stream for iPhone and Android mobile devices. Check out both shows from your video-enabled phones at live.dolcegabbana.mobi. D&G takes place Thursday, February 25 at 9AM EST, and the Dolce & Gabbana collection will be shown on Sunday, February 28 at 7AM EST.
