menswear collections: D&G, fall

by Jeremy Danté

presenting a collection that came off more camp for the FW11 season in milan, dominico & stefano presented a colorful set of menswear for their D&G label in milan today. i admire the fun approach to menswear but could recognize very close similarities to collections we’ve seen from dean & dan of DSQUARED2 in the past. the licensing of mickey mouse & coca-cola are fun while still appealing to a younger demographic, which is the goal of the D&G label. while questionable design mixed matches were seen on dual colored sleeves, i didn’t come away as inspired as i have in seasons past with this collection. always a stunning male cast, we seen familiar faces david agbodji of request models & corey baptiste of VNY close & open the show. round of applause no less for presenting a new direction compared to last spring & the fall of 2010. great direction, recycled concepts but promising. bold use of color, not usually expected for fall- fantastical use of fur. congratulations to david & corey.
