Dolce & Gabbana Men's Fall RTW 2010 / MFW Day-01

With scenes from the Italian film “Baarìa” projected as a backdrop, Dolce & Gabbana’s fashion vision leapt from the screen on to the runway. “The collection is a return to our roots: Sicilian heritage, sensuality and sartorial clothing,” said Stefano Gabbana, who with Domenico Dolce marks a 20th anniversary in men’s wear in 2010.

Glowering models entered in packs from stage left to a melancholic Ennio Morricone soundtrack, echoing scenes from the film – and chapters of the Dolce & Gabbana fashion legacy. For the first act, knitwear was the protagonist, worn chunky or thin - some to the point of threadbare – and paired with thermal, jodhpur-like long underwear, a nod to Palermo in the Twenties.

Then came relaxed tailored looks in lush velvet or washed flannels with frayed lapels, evoking a hand-me-down chic. Meanwhile, paint-splattered denim, stonewashed leather jackets and beaten-up shoes were fit for men of work and men of leisure.

The dénouement, a parade of 90 models who lumbered down the runway in knitted tank tops and tattered trousers, mesmerized the audience. But it was the rugged, yet elegant wardrobe for fall that really stole the show.
