Dolce&Gabbana Men SS2015 Collection continues the journey in rediscovering Sicily’s rich history, and the idea that tailoring can be reinvented.
This season, the main source of inspiration for Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana is the Spanish domination of the island and, specifically, how the Spanish influenced the local popular culture, infusing it with typical Spanish traditions such as folklore and a joy of life which could be felt at local town fairs, etc.
As usual, these elements are not interpreted in a literal sense; for example, the decorations one can see on the traditional toreador’s clothes (usually made of golden thread) becomes black.
Evolution and experimentation are key, which translates to new tailoring techniques, such as the use of fabrics in an unconventional way and in the proportions of the clothes jackets become longer, vests have a new shape and pants are slimmer.
The symbol of the collection is the bull, which represents masculinity. The new Dolce&Gabbana man is a strong man, who is not fearful of anything.
The primary color is red, which for Dolce&Gabbana embodies passion, love, and Sicily. Other colors include white, grey, black, light blue – colors of the toreador’s jacket.
The runway show features a total of 75 total looks.
The Finale: differing shades of red.
