Harlem-rapper Azealia Banks tweeted that she is “definitely boycotting Dolce & Gabbana for their corny, racist imagery in their 2013 spring collection.” D&G say that the imagery is used to “celebrate their Sicilian roots.” Not for nothin’ but the earrings can definitely be taken as racist. They sent white women down the runway with earrings that were black women wearing burlap dresses and plantation-era cornucopias. Something tells me that they didn’t design this outfit for Miss Banks, but that’s just a guess.
To top last year’s “Gaga’s Workshop” holiday display, Barneys New York has teamed up with Disney for a season they’re calling “Electric Holiday.” Some of Disney’s most beloved characters, like Minnie Mouse, Cruella de Vil, and Snow White, have been transformed into suitably anorexic runway models in couture getups, based on the designers’ sketches. Here, Daisy Duck is svelt in Dolce & Gabbana and Goofy kicks Johnny Depp’s pirate ass in Balmain. (via OMG Blog, via WWD)
Brocade, brocade, and more brocade! From Now Fashion: “Decadent as always, Dolce & Gabbana showed no restraint in their Fall/Winter collection. A long black cape opened today’s show; worn with a three-piece suit, it suggested dark yet playful Dracula elegance for next winter. A recurring appearance of velvet lapels and waistcoats worn with white shirt and black ties brought a gothic nudge à la Brad Pitt in Interview with a Vampire. The generous use of organic, traditionally East European embroidery on jackets, coats, simple jumpers, as well as the use of thick fur on necklines and linings took the audience straight to an imaginary Transylvania. In parallel, the designs also pointed at a certain British countryside chic, with three quarter, buttoned-hem trousers, bow ties, long johns and brown leather weekender bags – Jack the Ripper perhaps? Minimalist it is not – but indulgent, ripped and sharp-teethed, without a doubt.”
