D&G's spring '12 collection

The fashion world was shell-shocked yesterday after Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana announced that their spring 2012 D&G show for Milan Fashion Week would be the label’s last. WWD reported last March that the design duo was considering shuttering the secondary label due to the too similar price points between D&G and the Dolce & Gabbana collection. Inside sources said the two lines were actually “cannabalizing” each other and the only solution was to absorb D&G back into the signature line.

So alas, that day came with the official announcement yesterday preceding the spring 2012 runway show. And to bid the industry adieu, er, ciao – the label presented a soft and swirling multi-colored show dedicated to the scarf.  The silken panels went above and beyond the mere accessory realm, enveloping models as full ensembles, belted, tucked and folded to create sleeves, straps and skirts. The fabrics were almost all silks, presumably to mimic the sheen of a luxury scarf, a staple in Milanese fashion. And that’s exactly what Dolce & Gabbana seemed to want to convey: that even though the D&G label would be no more, it never strayed far from it’s roots of classic, achingly chic European style.
