Dolce & Gabbana Menswear Fall 2017
Cameron Dallas, who, as usual, brought several hundred hopelessly devoted young female fans in his wake, opened the show in a black and burgundy suit as Austin Mahone, also suited, wielded a golden microphone on the runway.
Brandon Thomas Lee wore an oversize down jacket with patches of brocade over a pajama suit. Rafferty Law wore patched denim, Luka Sabbat wore a suit—Domenico Dolce said many of his choose-it-yourself models had surprised him by opting for tailoring—with a shirt open wide enough to display his chains, and Presley Gerber went for a red velvet jacket with guard embroideries. Tinie Tempah’s golden and blue floral jacquard suit was awesome.
Still, they kept coming: Diggy Simmons, Neels Visser, Chase Hill, Chen Xue Dong, and Sergio Carvajal in a collection that speedily became pretty bananas. Weibo fashion critic Gogoboi wore a faux-leopard-fur oversize bomber that came with a carnival prize stuffed leopard head at the hood; there were also polar bear and dog versions.
Regal canines—including a great snob fox in a smoking jacket shown on one velvet sweatshirt worn over brocade patch jeans—were a theme. Sneakers were dipped in resin, given elegant brand signature, or scribbled and sketched on in a teen-dream mosaic like those covering the backpacks of the Cameron Dallas fans screaming in the freezing cold outside.
