Dolce & Gabanna is True for Fall/Winter 2012-2013

"We're always asked to be ourselves," Dolce said before the show. "The challenge is to remain true to Dolce & Gabanna while renewing ourselves, so we work on materials and research."
What Dominico Dolce and Stefano Gabanna came up with is what they call "Romantic Baroque." A motif rich with material from the island they adore, Sicily.

The principal motif is heavy golden embroidery against black was inspired by ornately carved frames. They went on everything from outerwear (coats, jackets, and capes, one of which appeared to weigh more than the model who wore it.) to the necklines and waists of pretty dresses.

On the lighter side the white lace and tulles were just right and were worked into dresses and blouses. There were some petite point florals and dark cherub prints infused with color.
Overall this was a wonderfully theatrical presentation. Dolce & Gabanna remained true to themselves and if they weren't their work would not be as good and people would not resonate with it. There are designers out there who are themselves and continue to be and it shows in their work. There are others who just miss the mark because they are not true to themselves and it shows. Dolce & Gabanna are so true that their next collection will be just true as this one, I'm sure.
