Dolce Gabbana Men Fall 2021-2022 - Scandalous Plagiarism

Dolce Gabbana Men Fall 2021-2022 - Scandalous Plagiarism. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE. Please consider this article as PLAGIARISM CHECK TOOL / 100% Free and Accurate!
Being big admirer of Dolce Gabbana, their creative and innovative approach, great quality, devotion to “Fatto a mano”, support to many Italian artisans and crafts. Well, at least I was. I understand the idea of “Family”, I have my family, and I’m very devoted to mine. But the resent changes in the house of Dolce Gabbana became the sorrow for the eyes. So the new heirs, starting from new CEO Alfonso Dolce, brother of Domenico – only family members, are to carry out creative plans for generations. Good plan… doesn’t work though. All 2020 year Domenico and Stefano started the transfer of creative power from them to the new creative directors and marketers from Domenico Dolce family.
This collection suppose to represent according to press-release the story of the designers who grew up in 80s-90s. Yes, there are dozen of absolutely fabulous jackets / looks of Dolce Gabbana. But what it really represents is 100 pieces of “mix-and-match” of Jeremy Scott-ish, Philippe Plein-ish, Moncler-ish, Gucci-ish… even 2-3 jackets Chanel-ish…. But where’s Dolce Gabbana? Great creative Italian House with Opera and class??? And this “America” song of Justin Bieber for 20 min gave headache. Los Angeles looks mixed with looks for Harlem boys and pimps are suppose to represent new marketing tactic?
And what’s the point to go for plagiarism suddenly? Well noted that the most commercial looks of the big houses were picked by “Family Affaires” team to reassure maximum sales. UPS!
The collection looks like a collection of very rich emerging brand. PLAGIARISM – that what we never could even imagine in Dolce Gabbana House. So let’s mark down what is borrowed and copied.
Jeremy Scott, Artistic director of Moschino, showed Ready-to-Wear Fall-Winter 2019-2020 in February 2019, and this collection made a buzzzzz and had a huge success, specifically in Asian markets.
Next – CHANEL. Can you imagine women jackets on men… well… very feminine men? Now you do with this new Dolce Gabbana Menswear collection for Fall-Winter 2021-2022. Even Olivier Rousteing, Artistic Director of Balmain, didn’t dare to go that far… Even the jewelry, which comes with these Chanel-ish jackets looks like Chanel, with DG on them of course. Was there tribute or something Dolce Gabbana forgot to mention to Chanel?
This look I love the most – classic CHANEL tweed, with classic CHANEL pearls, and the classic CHANEL black bag by…. by… DOLCE GABBANA.
Next in line Philipp Plein Fall-Winter 2020-2021
Noticed something Moncler-ish???? From these wonderful Moncelr Genius collections launched couple of years ago where several designers present their view and creative interpretation of Moncler? Yep, here we are. Moncler by Pierpaolo Piccioli Fall-Winter 2018-2019 got the hit. You can also check this fabulous collection of Pierpaolo Piccioli for Moncler 2019-2020.
Or and by the way Dolce Gabbana choose the male model, who’s slightly… no, a lot looks like Ezra Miller, who wore one of these coats for the premiere Fantastic Beats 2.
So it appears that each and every look, taken from other fashion designers or brands, was very well calculated in relation to the impact on the market it did 1 or 2 years ago. And when it comes to the timeless pieces like Chanel looks – these ones of course were taken with precaution and modified in relation to the 80s – the Chanel before Karl.
I also can add here couple of Gucci looks…. and the looks of Snoop Dogg wears pimp coat… oh, sorry pink coat… that is probably where these Gucci looks are coming from in Dolce Gabbana Men Fall 2021-2022 collection.

Valentino Couture Summer 2021

Valentino Couture Summer 2021. Gold, Venetian masks painted gold, bright colors and overwhelming Romanticism of Pierpaolo Piccioli, creative director of House Valentino, is the whole new story of House Valentino for Summer 2021 season. And let us hope that these bright colors will lighten up our hearts with hope and inspire us for greatness.
“When I first started to work on this show, I had clear in mind what I wanted to see. The essence of couture lays on how the couture is done and most of all by who is done. It lays in the ability of seamstress and tailors to manipulate fabrics and threads through a process that transcend the mere execution. We create together and while we do it the creation itself changes whoever is involved in the making. it’s a mutual exchange in which everything is transformed. Now we are here, ready to show the outcome of our journey. What you see here is the result of months, days and hours of the work of the incredibly talented, gifted, human beings that works in the Valentino Atelier. I can’t think of anything better than a princely residence, in our home, Roma, to reveal the real nobility of their job. I am proud of what we did. I am proud of this team and with them by my side, anything is possible. This is now, this is the future, no gender boundaries, no boundaries at all. This is fashion, this is couture.” – creative director of Maison Valentino Pierpaolo Piccioli.

Chanel Couture Summer 2021

Chanel Couture Summer 2021 “Flowers and LESS KITSCH”. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
It is indeed a shiny summer, in the paradise. Simple looks, peasant silhouettes, flowers… and like CEO of Chanel Bruno Pavlovsky recently put it in his interview to Belgian Newspaper “Le Soir” – “less kitsch”, compare with the time when Karl Lagerfeld designed Chanel: “The truth is that Virgine Viard has discreetly but effectively refined and restructured the Chanel wardrobe: there is less emphasis and eccentric accessories, less kitsch, for more luxurious, universal and timeless pieces, which will cross the seasons… Every day, Virginie’s talent surprises me a little more, she has such an understanding of what Chanel represents. But she also has, in my opinion, a very correct idea of ​​the new image she wants to give to our customers; and which is singularly in tune with our times.”
That says it all. New images of Chanel, simple, affordable, which proposes massive public sales… and flowers… lots and lots of flowers of course. From rich Haute Couture to very casual Ready-to-Wear and more…

Schiaparelli Couture Spring Summer 2021

Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring Summer 2021. The beginning of 2021 became a real creative explosion for French fashion house Schiaparelli and its creative director Texan Daniel Roseberry. “Creativier and Creativier!” said Daniel Rosberry like a magic spell, and he got himself for Christmas a Kim Kardashian to dress like a superwoman or Christmas tree, whichever comes first. Kim got her the six pack bodice, in molded leather rubbed to be Jaguar green, and the skirt in absinthe silk velvet.
Then another very successful moment and actually very important moment in American history for all United States was the dress Lady Gaga wore for the Inauguration of Joe Biden January 20th 2021. Lady Gaga sang National anthem in absolutely spectacular dress created for this occasion by Daniel Roseberry.
And last but not least Daniel Roseberry decided to do the photoshoot of his new Spring Summer 2021 Haute Couture Collection himself. Designer and photographer?.. Who was the last one we knew and who’s place was dark and empty for some time?… Daniel photographed himself spectacular surrealistic pieces the way he saw them. Absolute success!

Christian Dior Couture Summer 2021

Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring Summer 2021. Monsieur Dior was famously superstitious and, in a perpetuation of House history, this Haute Couture Spring Summer 2021 collection is a story of premonitions, tarot and all mysteries of the world. Maria Grazia Chiuri after many experiments in peasant looks and “Bobo simplified extravaganza” decided to give the wheel of the haute Couture collection to the designers of the Dior House. And this is collection is absolutely fabulous unity of the classic silhouette of Dior House and savoir-faire.
Tarot cards are among the keys to accessing the magical realm, to explore the unknown while fearlessly looking deep inside oneself. In uncertain times marked by a palpable desire to reconnect with the world’s soul, through the spring-summer 2021 haute couture collection, the mysterious and pluralistic beauty of the tarot in a series of dresses featuring virtuoso constructions; manifest proof that couture remains the ultimate territory of experimentation and possibility.
A series of extraordinary evening gowns features abstract constructions, some with veritable bas-relief openwork bodices punctuated with illustrations by Pietro Ruffo. In this spirit, the roman artist created a singular deck of cards in which characters disclose the graphic energy of the symbols. Dior gray appears in tweed, cashmere and organza on shirts, skirts, pants and capes. Meanwhile, the bar jacket is revisited in black velvet, its curves reinterpreted to express a new attitude.
Decorated by the illuminator Bonifacio Bembo for the Duke of Milan in the 15th century, this tarot deck illustrates the marvelous tale of this collection. Splendid cards embellished in gold, enamel, and vegetal and geometric interlacing have a solemn and enigmatic presence, revealing an inner journey, like an adventure of self-discovery. A voyage to the heart of a castle populated by characters embodying the major arcana who question and disorient, inviting the viewer to look at the world from a new perspective. In the director’s interpretation, this quest surpasses gender boundaries, presenting a synthesis of masculine and feminine in a new heraldic mythology evoking the enchanted worlds Matteo Garrone loves.
A clairvoyant asks to draw a card in a deck designed as a catalogue of possibilities, a cryptic dictionary of the world. The high priestess, the empress, justice, and the fool are notably sublimated through excellence of savoir-faire celebrating the art of weaving: lace is inlaid with hand-painted embellishments, golden velvet is enlivened with the signs of the zodiac and precious jacquards are sprinkled with stars, while a cape in multicolored feathers showcases 3d volumes in this story, the insider always needs the feminine complement and vice versa, because only such a fusion makes it possible to approach a formative path leading to self-awareness. As Italo Calvino points out in the castle of crossed destinies: “the world has to be read upside-down”.

Best of Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2021

Best of Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2021 season. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.

Paris was competing with New York and Milan about how to organize in the best way fashion week, make it safe and secure for the designers, all participants and the people who’ll be able to attend. Fashion Federation in New York decided to go mostly for digital presentation, only few very private shows were organized by the designers at their own homes.

Milan obviously won this “safety” competition. The masks, social distancing (2m between the seats), negative tests for all participants and the gusts at the entrance – perfect organization. Fashion Federation in Paris (Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode) organized the fashion week…. well, how it’s been always organized in Paris. Federation announced that 1000 people are perfectly allowed to be present at the show, even French government forbid all public gatherings for more than 12 people. No one really cared about social distancing, and of course there were no negative tests demands. Although not too many designers organized the real shows, many decided “go safety”, “go digital”, and do the online presentations.

Christian Dior, Balmain and Chanel and couple of emerging designers organized “real” shows, plus of course fashion salons. Salons were empty, no one visited them, as public already long time ago lost interest to emerging brands repeating, recopying and reproducing each other, and now professionals, experts, media and buyers are no longer interested in overprized badly made clothes.

The result of these efforts are… zero, not a big fat one, invisible one. The scheduled online presentations didn’t draw much attention either. Brands, who are so eager to buy fake followers on instagram and other social media networks, didn’t get closer to reality, not much viewers were noted on the instagram or youtube. Perhaps it is a time to face it – only very small community, 200-300 people are really interested to watch, and only 5% of them are actually have desire to buy.

Christian Dior opened the fashion week, and showed Italian looks, looks repeated Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino designs, spiced up by peasant tasteless looks, during the modern, very contemporary choral, which no one was able to handle for more than 2 mon, plus pseudo-artistic approach.

Olivier Rousteing for Balmain Spring Summer 2021 season decided to battle his habit to copy and presented something which no one expected – a collection “dig, dig, dig, dig, dig, dig, dig”. Heigh-Ho, he actually found the way, for ones, this ones, to use traditional Balmain logo on the garments and bags, and presented the looks he actually created himself, and the Pinocchio looks he actually loves: oversized long jackets and shorts panties.

The hit of this season was Spring Summer 2021 collection presented by Rick Owens from Milan. He organized the show in Milan, to be safe, knowing that Paris is not ready and not willing or capable to compel to health issues, and projected it to Paris digitally. Can you imagine Rick Owens pink? No, you can’t. But here it is – pink, fresh and beautiful, full of hope and actually elegance. In all ways it feels like the heart of Rick Owens during these dark times filled up with the hope.

Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood Spring Summer 2021 created an ode to Vivienne Westwood, romantic and profound ” from Chinese Tanka to English fog”.

And of course “without further ado”, discussions, conferences and investment, Vivienne Westwood Spring Summer 2021 collection presented another sustainability creative project. N.B Fabrics: Recycled, Eco, Bio, Organic, FSC Certified.

Chanel wanted to present “Hollywood” collection for this Spring Summer 2021 season. The look apparently reserved for the stars, who’ll wear them for the next Award ceremony. Everything was designed to support this “cinematic” view: huge letters ‘CHANEL” in the manner of famous “Hollywood” letters in California, colorful simple pants and jackets, ti-shirts with letter “5” in the form of the street tags, colorful shirts with photos of neon lights. Chanel Spring-Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection imagined by Virginie Viard, inspired by the House’s privileged relationship with actresses, both on and off-screen.

And basically there’s nothing more to say about Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2021 season. No more creative concepts noted, and to speak about massive fiasco has no longer any interest.
