Wild West meets pop culture. Dolce&Gabbana Sicilian Western
An interesting experiment was presented to us at the Milan Fashion Week by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. They first used an unusual combination of Sicilian flair and Wild West imagery. These two seemingly completely different styles are merged in an incredible way in a collection which references both the old (Wild West) with the new (the fashion). And it's done so masterfully that at first you do not even notice the contrast that is still present, and quite easily and imperceptibly creates an amazing harmony of the image in its variety of colors and materials.
The male brutal look of a biker in a leather jacket which designers diluted with applique and embroidery in the style of the Wild West. This combination does not look unusual, on the contrary it seems harmonious and inseparable. Or the modern look of the fashionable macho in a fur coat looks surprisingly balanced combination and perfectly fits into the general theme of the collection.
Despite the fact that almost all looks are made in black and white colors, it did not turn out monotonous. Such combinations even more focus on the main motifs of the collection. Each image is remembered as a separate perfect picture in a beautiful art gallery.
In general, the idea to embody a combination of the theme of the Wild West and modern fashionable styles was very successful. This fresh and non-standard approach gave birth to a whole trend in the fashion world and gave a start to imitation for young designers.
Although such attempts have been made by many other fashion brands, it was Dolce & Gabbana who has been able to create a truly unrivaled masterpiece. A bold approach to experiments and a constant quality of performance allow this fashion house to stay one of the most famous and revered around the world.
