D&G French Fashion Spring 2009 from Milan Fashion Week

Edited by #Tania

If you're looking for something that's subtly chic, don't watch a D&G runway show.

At the recent D&G French Fashion Spring 2009 collection which was shown at the #Milan Fashion Week, the designs of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were fun, chic, unabashedly sexy and unapologetically flashy.

#NY Fashion describes the D&G look well:

Devastatingly sexy, fetishistic designs and a characteristically Italian aesthetic; every collection would look at home on the set of a Fellini movie.

Check out what the #collection for yourself and tell us what you think:

Instead of plains, we've seen a lot of retro stripes, bold patterns, engaging prints and a delightful mixture of different textures.

How else would you describe a retro-navy stripe maillot with a red anchor to the chest? Or that pleated gold lame and chiffon dress printed with nautical flags and sailor knots?

Others may call 'em over the top – but I think that the overall theme of the #fun, lighthearted and kickass show is a perfect reflection of what the D&G label is all about.
