Inspiration at Dolce & Gabbana SS209
Dolce & Gabbana threw Milan a slumber party with looks influenced by classic men's silk pajamas. I love the contrast trim and patterns, but the Mickey Mouse-shouldered jackets are for a woman bolder than me. The colors are more suited for winter in rich shades of red, navy, black and cream, but I prefer this to a tropical cabana. The masculine looks juxtaposed with large 3d flowers on several dresses and coats; bows on the hair, belt, shoes, and neck; sequins on most of the shoes; and fistfuls of jewelry.The detail shots are especially inspiring. I have a tendency to tie ribbon around my neck willy-nilly anyway, and I have to find out how they made these ties. Also, brightening up a look with brooches is a cheap breeze if you head to Goodwill or raid you mother's jewelry box. Grab a handful of pins in the same color family and cluster them on your bag, on a scarf in your hair, on your belt or on your shirt. You can pin them on top of ribbon bows too just like in these runway photos.
