Milan’s Fashion Week feature on Sunday, might have started with a 45-minute delay thanks to Dolce & Gabbana’s attempt at drone tech, but it certainly was memorable.
The Day Machines Came For Catwalk Models
Aside from the technological snafu responsible for the show’s delay (hey, it’s not easy to get professional Instagrammers to turn off their wifi at all, much less for the full 20 minutes of the show), the use of drones to show off their new Devotion bags was typical of D&G’s style motto: Have some fun.
While Gucci went for a hospital meets Mosul vibe for their show, Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall Winter 2018/19 collection was all about embracing and celebrating a love of fashion through the ages with odes to Rococo, Howdy Doody, and Nanny Fine.
Between the animal print, sequins, bedazzling, and flatware there was a lot going on.
As described by Co-creator Domenico Dolce (the one that doesn’t showcase his trampoline workouts), “Fashion is not work, fashion is devotion. You live, sleep and eat with fashion, you never stop thinking about it and you love it with all your heart.”
Back to the drones, though. With such a dark news cycle, frankly, it was rather nice to see drones tote purses instead of buzzing planes.
