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.

Love the hat and vest combination, if not the sneer of the model.  Notice the damage done to the sweater of the model behind this one.  Shoes are scuffed and the fabric has an already lived in quality.

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.
