Fashion: Dolce&Gabbana Menswear ss12

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana know masculinity, they know sexuality, they know style. For their Spring 2012 menswear collection, the theme was "Netting" — in every sense of the word. From soccer nets, to finishing nets, to internet (paraphrasing Tim Blanks; I'm not that clever ha), it was all represented. There were knits and leathers which interpreted the sheer trend seen in womenswear as netting; the end result consisted of blazers, tops, shorts, pants, and bags all netted. While such a literal translation of an idea can often times come off as uninspired and/or bland, Dolce&Gabbana intermixed the theme with well tailored suits, oxfords, and sturdy leather bags. This collection is more so about beating the idea of nets into our heads, but closer examinations reveal very interesting details, most notably the lowered waist lines on the trousers. This collection has the buyer most definitely in mind... if only their D&G presentation wasn't such a load of garbage. More detailed images after the jump.
