D&G S/S 2010 / MFW / Day one

Goodbye, Grand Opera. Hello, Grand Ole Opry. Taking a cue from their men’s show in June, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana created a Wild West country extravaganza for spring. And as is their wont, the designers left no thematic stone unturned in their pursuit of cowpoke chic. For starters, there was denim galore — faded, ripped or distressed — cut as sexy jumpsuits, high-waisted shorts, Western shirts and, naturally, jeans. (Here’s to the trompe l’oeil denim pullover they sent out, which was wittily terrific.) Adding to the city-slicker mix were loads of fringe (cascading down cowboy boots, for instance) and suede, the latter rendered as mock “lace” with tiny cutouts. A charming case in point: those eyelet bloomers. But the duo also made merry with a masculine-feminine motif. So for every tailored men’s look — broad-shouldered blazers and cropped trousers — they served up a coquette counterpart, bedecked in bustier dresses and frothy ruffles. So, Saloon Sallys and Buffalo Belles alike, saddle up.
