The Dolce and Gabbana collection saw a depiction of Norman history, with knights and kings from the past marching back into fashion.
The show’s song conjures up images of a long march filled with promise. A time when men went out to defend their territories with just a sword and chainmail. This was mirrored through their chunky knit balaclava style headwear – fit for a king and ideal for the brisk winter months.
Prints were key in telling their story, with chain mail print coats giving a literal representation of our Norman ancestors, and velvet jumpers resembling portraiture.
Trainers paired with crowns meant royalty met street-wear in a blend of past and present, which worked seamlessly for an up to date edge.
A dark palette of blacks, reds and greys were enhanced with highly embellished accessories and shining crowns, glistening in the light of the overhead chandeliers – reminding us of opulence and bravery from the past.
