The following pictures are from Dolce & Gabbana‘s Man Fashion Show for their Winter 2011 line. D&G said they were inspired by Baaria, a movie about three generations in a Sicilian village coping with fascism, war, communism and the Mafia.
All of the clothes have a depression era working class kind of look to them.
Nice boots! Is this model wearing a D&G version of long johns?
This guy was the centerpiece for the show. He even led all of the models out for the group runway walk.
More questioning faces. I do like these clothes. There’s something about them that says casual and expressive at the same time. Like you could go visit a vineyard in Italy or read poetry in Greenwich Village. A bit Bohemian, perhaps even Beatnik, but definitely a throwback to another time. These designs seem steeped in nostalgia. I’ve never paid attention to a men’s fashion line like this before, nor been so captivated. I find myself going back to it again and again.
