in the category of
"most yawn-inducing" runways,
the winners are a tie this season.
both dolce&gabbana and dsquared
mine a similar aesthetic.
some have even accused the twins of following too closely to d&g's pattern
of italian tailoring meets soft core porn,
though it can be argued that dsquared definitely mines the abercrombie/americana
vein far more enthusiastically.
but this season,
both shows were uninspired.
packed with "greatest hits" of sorts,
neither fell flat,
but neither added anything new or noteworthy.
dolce rolled out it's classic
suit/leathers/eveningwear/model dujour in underwear
(this year being david gandy):
no complaints on the general look,
and there are great pieces,
dsquared did not far much better,
rolling with evening mixed with denim/athletic mixed with evening/leathers cropped and tight:
although if you are looking for a cute twinset,
the twins have you covered:
