Well, D&G reincarnated it with a much more masculine touch for this year's Spring menswear collection. All I can say is: thank fuck.
I've been lusting over this design, but a blouse and loose flowy pants is too feminine even for me. Yeah, Kanye wore the blouse at Coachella.
But I'm not Kanye.
So imagine my pleasure when I saw this collection. I really adore the baroque style prints. Even though they're a bit whimsical (a word used a lot to describe most menswear spring collections this year) but because of their symmetry, it still has a very refined, clean and precise feel. The flowiness of the fabric is perfect for the summer - it's comfortable and very wearable - perfect for those sticky, balmy days.
The prints feel very grand and evoke a kind of magisterial and old-world royal presence, like they've been directly inspired by the ceilings of Versailles.
The denim pairings are very D&G - ultra-sexy, masculine and relaxed. Plus, the denim contrasts very well with the prints.
Some of my favourites from the collection:
Now the trunks are the cherries on top of the cake. I can't wait for the Australian summer months to arrive. I can't believe I'm saying this since I'm more of a winter, coat/scarf-wearing person but bring on the hot weather! I really want to wear one of these around Bondi Beach.
