Geeky Bombshells, Greek Bondage?


After my dedicated post to Dolce and Gabbana, here is the rest of Milan’s Fashion Week with two highlights. For one we have the geeky bombshells from dSquared2 and a bit of dominatrix action in Versace.

It was a shocking season in Milan, this year – almost earthquaking – because dSquared2 went from their usual nude and sexual theme to a far less provocative seduction – the nerd look. Everything seemed toned down by Dean and Dan. They seem to follow the trend now where quiet and demure is sexy where as, loud and brazen is raunchy and slutty.

They opened the show with a printed outerwear with a plain top and matching print pants but what was significant about the collection was the range of glasses worn by every single model, which seemed to be a reminiscence to last Spring/Summer’s collection on the couture camp wear and models in glasses were featured in the ads.

Aside the glasses, there was also the straw hats which evokes the feeling of a swamp and a private cottage where Southerners lived – again, it is fro the last Spring/Summer.

For all you know, the story might be somewhere along the lines of the models from last season went for a trip in the swamps and jungles (of a resort), then decided this season, that they should live there permanently. Hence, the more relaxed outfit.

Aside from that, it was a clean minimal collection, love the number with the simple vest and shorts with lace trimmings and the black cylinder dress with laced shoulders.

But when you turn to Versace, things aren’t anywhere near relaxing – it was intense. It was Greek and it was bondage which somehow relates, especially when you look into the Greek mythology and history. Something kinky was going on.

With the sleek tied bun, wrapped in a PVC piece, shows the dominatrix within. The intensity in the collection was amazing and some say Versace went back to its roots – more daywear as to evening.

But it was Donatella all the way, if you refer back to the last few seasons, bondage seemed to have sipped in, unnoticed.

As always, Versace had been the very few existing designers who always rock the cut-out trend. From the literal cut-outs on the waist and shoulder, slightly covered with straps or a belt to the see-through Greek inspired patterns o the dresses, it was a true cut-out moment.

Aside from all the usual glam, Versace like a lot of others jumped into the world of fringes, but hers was printed. it seemed that it was a printed cloth shredded through a paper shredder, which I think might be the actual case.

Thus, this ends my journey to Milan, though Fashion Week is long gone, there is still plenty of time to ctach up before the season actually does.

Till then, CIAO!
