A Moment in Fashion: Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2008

More often than not, I find the best inspiration in older collections, rather than the latest ones. It’s maybe because when I see a collection from the past that I still like and find relevant, that means that the designer did something right. Of course there are new collections I instantly like, but having the proof that a certain design has stood the test of time makes it all the more special and valuable.

Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2008: There are so many things I like about these looks, but the scarves and their styling, which, paired with the flat caps, so beautifully emphasize the face, are easily my favourite part. I don’t think it’s ever occurred to me to wear a silk scarf (I can’t call it a neck scarf because of the length) like this: wrapped around the neck and tied in the front. I already can’t wait for milder temperatures to put this idea into practice.

An infusion of glamorous comfort and polished country feeling, with tweeds and checks and corduroy center stage. Leather jackets, printed pleated skirts, fur/faux fur coats, gilets, dresses and skirts, everything belted, made a stylish appearance too. The dresses that finished the show, of layers of chiffon and traditional British fabrics, wove a little romance into this beautiful autumn fashion story too – it’s something I like seeing on the catwalk. And last, but not least, the seventies vibe throughout the collection was what completed the overall appeal.
