Dolce & Gabbana’s Spanish Theme at Milan Men’s Fashion Week

A macho display of Spanish-flavoured wear was the main theme of Dolce & Gabbana’s 2015 spring show in Milan Men’s Fashion week.

The catwalk was inspired by Birmingham’s main commercial area, The Bull Ring. The show was opened by brocade torero jackets tucked in high on the waist, teamed with slim trousers and complemented by slippers. After the torero theme, the Spanish steps of Dolce & Gabbana were less directly taken.

Richly decorated brocade boxing shorts were also featured with a champion’s belt that has the symbol of the sacred heart on the navel.

The fashion show was filled with brocade designs, including hand-painted figures of bulls on silk Mikado Vests that looked more like baggy street wear. These vests were worn with hi-top trainers instead of astrakhan slippers.

There were jewel-toned suits that require the wearer to be confident. One design was red brocaded and hooded suit with the image of Mother Mary of Guadalupe in the center. The other was a silky red hooded jacket that has a big image of the sacred heart on the middle.

Some designs featured polka dot shirts matched with shorts and mixed with satchels that go across the chest complemented by sandals.

Dolce & Gabbana’s trademark finale where models gathered and marched at the catwalk featured various shades of red with different cuts.

According to Domenico Dolce, the red symbolizes love and passion. He said the collection’s starting point was the relationship between Sicily and Spain, which later on transformed to a Spanish fantasy. The designs were inspired by the Mediterranean man who is very masculine and confident but not arrogant.

For the brand’s 2014 winter collection, they took the traditional medieval theme and turned it into more of a contemporary street wear. It makes men look fierce, but fabulous and casually laidback at the same time.
