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.

This is not part of spring fashion week, I'm assuming, yeah? 'Cause these look much more suited for the winter holidays than April showers and May flowers.

It's for spring and summer. Milan has been very seasonless.
