Dolce Gabbana Fall Winter 2021-2022

Dolce Gabbana Fall Winter 2021-2022. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.

Well, after recent fiasco with Men collection Fall Winter 2021-2022 this collection is indeed “Back to the feature” or “Rewind” or “Remastered” experience created by two great designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. There’s indeed a glitch of Philipp Plein, and not only me had to notice, but the pink or golden glossy pants are not exactly only his signature. But there are also “Street Tagging”, “Chinese Street”, “Star Wars”, “Astronauts”, “Baseball”, themes.

Non need “to celebrate the excellence”, like it says in the press-release, as there’s no such thing as perfection. Although there’s indeed very important research related to artificial intelligence, new technologies in general which became a part of fashion, shown by models. Dolce & Gabbana and the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in this Fall Winter 2021-2022 show brought up research in the technological field and its infinite applications, fashion included.

The multifunctional humanoid robots iCub and R1 (thinking of “Star Wars”) were involved in the event, the result of IIT’s highly specialized research activity in the field of service robotics and Artificial Intelligence. Here also overlapping a little bit with Philipp Plein who showed during Milan Fashion Week a show for Spring Summer 2016 season, where models were served by the robots.

The idea of this Dolce Gabbana collection is to show how technology and craftsmanship, two different worlds, might come together. The looks for this collection were inspired by robotics research and Artificial Intelligence, and based on the looks created by Dolce Gabbana in 90s.

Let’s start from the technology. Dolce Gabbana presented I’d say “cyber-fashion” : artificial colors, fake textures and digitally enhanced features, kaleidoscopic high-tech materials, morphing wools with plastics, and vegan “things”. The designers had employed technological evolution to develop real, tactile fabrics that brought the look of virtual reality into the material world.

And what is morphing from 90s to this futuristic collection is the transformation of their LEOPARD PRINT. Everyone has a jacket or coat, black classic tailor or denim, with leopard print inside. Even Vice-President of United States Kamala Harris has one, and wore it at the Inauguration day. So this collection shows leopard prints outside in artificial yellow, red and blue colors. These colors were used on the leather, denim, polyester and silk, and applied by new technological methods.

Another known element, like we say DNA today, from Dolce Gabbana past which developed trough the years is the patchwork, amazing craftsmanship and traditional Sicilian and Italian patchwork. This patchwork also find its place in this new futuristic collection. Look how sparkle…

Themes:
“Street Tagging”. The show starts with very colorful pieces bomb-painted looks.
“Chinese Street”. The most admired and reproduced by billion “fashion looks” of Chinese streets Dolce Gabbana put up on absolutely new very luxury level.
“Star Wars” and “Astronauts”. Designers came up with very futuristic looks of the “blown up” goose-down jackets and coats in addition to specific face coverings due to pandemic. Let’s add here new marketing wave to make all “exploring cosmos”.

There are couple of other themes like “Baseball” or “Old Classic” (I don’t want to say Chanel-ish), themes and style of today and everyday life transformed and morphed by the new technologies applied to traditional fabrics, created a “New Touch” or “New Punch” of this Fall Winter 2021-2022 collection of Dolce Gabbana. Next step to use “Vegetal leather” out of apple skin, like Tommy Hilfiger produces for the second season.

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…

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.
