EL Irving, Model Scout, on the New D&G Collection
Last month, D&G revealed their collection for this coming winter. I can’t believe we’re already talking about next winter when this ones finally coming to an end, but apparently we are… This new collection was a bit of an eye brow raiser. It covers what I can only describe as several centuries of fashion, minus the frilly neck pieces and wigs, and attempts to bring certain, traditional Italian styles into the new era. For the most part this seems to work. There are some bizarre pieces thrown in, as in all shows, but oddly enough they seem to fit with the nostalgic aura of the collection as a whole.
Being a model scout, one of the first things I concentrate on is the models themselves. I was happy to see a wide variety of ages and body types on this catwalk. Some of the pieces that caught my eye were the trench at 5:23 and the blazer at 6:41. A lot of the time on catwalks you don’t see items that you think you could wear in the street, which is true for a lot of the pieces in this video, but there are some nice, discreetly fashionable pieces in this collection that I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for after the summer. The suits are mostly typically tailored Italian fashion, which is what the house is ultimately known for so no surprises there. I appreciate hearing from my followers so if you like, drop a message to the EL Irving Facebook page and either I or one of the team will get back to you as soon as we can!
