On the Runway

Milan Fashion Week: Alphabet City at D&G

I’m intrigued by the crayon-coloured letters on the runway and backdrop at D&G. It’s always one of my favourite shows: young, spirited and fun. And this season, Dolce and Gabbana take it back to the ’80s with a neon-infused alphabet soup. One cropped cut blonde model dressed in a fuchsia oversized blazer with a black alphabet striped tunic and leggings underneath looked like she stepped out of a Stephen Sprouse ad. The letter theme gets a bit gimmicky after a while but I do love the fur-lined solid neon anoraks and the Converse-inspired high-heeled wedge sneakers.
