What The Mess at Dolce & Gabbana?

Let's start with the good news. Dolce & Gabbana had several lovely striped looks. Breezy, summer on the Mediterranean wonderfulness.
That's really all the positive I have to say. From there, it launched into some of the ugliest prints I've ever seen. It's like they found 16-year-old Casey, the best artist in Mrs. Feeser's art class, to draw conquistadors and Africans who happen to look like potatoes.
Casey was also clearly still inspired by her summer basket weaving class. Lucky for us she got a glue gun for her birthday and was able to glue all sorts of beads and foof to these thousand dollar dresses. If she couldn't fit all the baubles on a dress, Casey just made loud earrings.
All joking aside, this show really angers me. No doubt, you've heard the phrase, "She even look good in a burlap sack." That's because poor people used to wear burlap sacks. My aunts, growing up in Kansas during the Dust Bowl and then waiting out the Great Depression on a southern Indiana farm, wore dresses made from burlap feed sacks. Material was too precious to throw away. So seeing a designer who sells $6,000 gowns making a dress that looks like a feed sack pisses me off. That's not smart design; it's just crass.
