Dolce & Gabbana

Autum 12

In addition to its signature slim-fit suits, the majority of which were single breasted, Dolce & Gabbana took elements of the now-defunct D&G diffusion line and fused them with traditional mainline aesthetics, meaning denim and jersey were mixed with velvet and brocade suits. The most obvious trend was the ornate gold embroidery on smoking jackets and blazers. However, the scrolling embroidery was used most successfully (and most commercially) on knitwear and woven T-shirts, being used to give an update to traditional shapes. The double-breasted overcoat was the strongest  outerwear style; capes may work on the catwalk but they are unlikely to be worn by your average man. As well as the db overcoats, chunky knit T-shirts and drop-crotch wool trousers were other clear winners from the illustrious Italian duo.
