Dolce & Gabbana Collection from Milan Fashion Week

Dolce & Gabbana channeled The Tudors in a major way during their F/W show on Friday at Milan Fashion Week. The collection was very romantic, very Italian and very, very Renaissance. I loved the rich, decadent colors they used as their pallet. There's something so undeniably regal and decadent about lush velvet red and gold. And as always the craftsmanship and attention to detail is unbelievable. What's also unbelivable however was the use of the padded shoulders. It seemed awfully Balenciaga. (And combined with the volumized skirt? Very Bal. Spring '08!) Now I'm not saying that Balenciaga has a lock on that, but like the red soles on the Louboutins, volumous shoulders have become a signature of the brand. Anyway, here is the collection. Enjoy!
