62 looks, and still, it’s one of the smaller collections from Dolce & Gabbana. I like the flapper-esque inspiration for the collection, with the masculine vs feminine themes going on. But how predictable in getting the shorter haired models like Iris and Daniela, who opened and closed the show respectively, to don the suits, while the longer haired models get to rock out the fringe and layers.

It’s a very wearable collection from the duo this time around, and noticeably absent are those signature gowns that magazine editors love to put in their pages. I know people may rant about how predictable the gowns were, but for me, it’s the part of the collection I always look forward too. Now, I’m having big-puffy-gowns withdrawal symptoms.

But I guess, what they lacked in the gowns department, they compensated with a powerful finale, where instead of the usual Caroline/Natasha/Lily stomping the final look, we got to see almost all the girls stomp it out in swimsuits. That was an image of female empowerment to me, where you’ve got strong women strutting it down like warriors.

    • Me too! When Natasha started the finale walk, I thought she was a leading a band of Russian mobsters!
