DOLCE & GABBANA: FALL 2010 - GOOD FOR 'JERSERY SHORE'?

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 | Vlada Roslyakova, Olga Sherer & Zuzana Gregorova

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 Collection is now in store in most parts of Europe, UK and the USA but I am not sure that this collection which is totally garish is as strong as their last collection. Leopard print features strongly through out the collection with a strong tendency leaning towards 80's styling and colour blocking. I can appreciate fashion repeating itself but surely the good  thing about this is  that you can leave the naff stuff out and focus on giving it all a new take. The floral headresses are reminiscent of  kitsch Florida bathing caps and the 50's synchronised swimming acts that were so popular at the time. The rest of the collection is made up of the usual nipped-in-the-waist tailoring which I am sure will remain popular this season but it leans more towards gear appropriate for the hunting season.........see the images below and post your comment.

I only had one favourite dress piece in the collection which was a silk velvet draped bustier dress - the rest was disappointing and this was entrenched by the fact that celebrities at the Emmy's wearing Dolce & Gabbana were as rare as the Dodo! This collection is so 'Jersey Shore'!

The dress is the only thing I like in this collection.........simple and elegant in the extreme.

A miss? Not sure there are many who style themselves along the lines of Fergi and Gwen Stefani and Madonna on a day out. I can see H&M and other high volume high street stores making a killing. My style, no.

D & G are no fly-by-nights. So what if they were a bit off this season? They'll bounce back.

I don't think we assuming they are fly by nights but just because it's Dolce & Gabbana does not preclude us from saying that we think they just didn't quite crack it. Bounce back they certainly did in their Spring|Summer 2011 Collection....

Am so with Gavin on the black dress, The prints in the rest look like a pizza Oh excluding the animal print...that still has it's own merit
