Please excuse my child-like collage, but I have to learn remedial Illustrator skills for work so I thought I might as well apply them to el blog. Even so, do not mistake my terrible lack of computer graphic capability for lack of enthusiasm for Dolce & Gabbana’s F/W collection as I AM SO IN LOVE! I’m just as excited about this collection as I was about Jil Sander for Spring. Elsa Schiaparelli was such an incredible subject of inspriation for this line. Big shoulders + nipped waists + rich dark fabrics = instant win, in my book. Oh, and the gloves as neck accessories give that hint of naughtiness that doesn’t hurt at all, either. There’s such an undeniably burlesque quality about these looks. I can’t wait to see Dita von Teese rock the sh*t out of one of these hot little numbers.
