D&G Fall Winter 2009.10 presented during Milano Fashion Week has taken us back in time and offered an astounding slew of prints as well. See more of our favorites singled out after the jump along with collection notes.
Inspiration: The fascinating world of theatre in its entirety, from the spectacular costumes to the plush gowns worn by the ladies who lunch, up to including elements of the theatre structure itself. The D&G; F/W 2009/2010 Women’s collection retraces the most significant operas, capturing the stylistic differences given by the original eras of release, and celebrates one of the icons of lyrical music: the unforgettable Maria Callas, whose features grace printed t-shirts, and who recorded Bellini’s Norma at the Metropol in 1954, the very premises where the D&G; Show takes place.
