I decided to marry the two levels of Dolce & Gabbana to one post since, honestly the D&G collection was quite a snooze alone . . .

Now for the main event, this was one amazing show and it didn't hurt that Annie Lennox was singing live. For this collection, the boys went back to their roots gathering inspiration from the men and boys of south Italy. Since this was such a huge collection, it has everything from lounge wear to formal wear, there were repetitions. the collection had a very light and airy feel to it. I really did not care much for the super distressed/ripped jeans (that Dolce and Gabbana is known for) and the loosely woven sweaters. But the linen suits were great, very relaxed but elegant at the same time. The basket-weave leather jackets were nice as well. The show ended with a suited parade of the Dolce and Gabbana boys down the runway. Bellissimo!
