Milan Fashion Week: Dolce & Gabbana AW18

Dolce & Gabbana is known to be a popular luxury design company, hailing from Milan, Italy.

Since the brand commenced sales in 1985, they have well and truly gone from strength to strength in the fashion industry.

They have definitely established themselves since the days of using their nearest and dearest as models in their runway shows.

Dolce & Gabbana managed to gain initial popularity as a brand when they created the phenomenon of the Sicilian Dress, which is still seen to be one of the most influential dresses of all time.

The company have been exhibiting collections at fashion week shows for years.

They showcased their most recent Autumn/Winter ’18 collection at Milan Fashion Week this season.

Lets check out some of the highlights from the show down below!

Powerful In Purple

We absolutely adore this look!

This model is sporting a sparkly bralet style top with striking black straps – the colour is just so stunning.

It has been paired with some slim fitted silk satin trousers, which are incredibly flattering.

The addition of a D&G belt adds some subtle branding.

A pair of fishnet socks and some black heels help to add a touch of grunginess to the look.

The matching accessories include a chained handbag, chunky statement jewellery and some wonderful cat eye embellished sunnies!

Cluster Of Crystals

This is a look which is typical of the brand.

The model is wearing a knee length strappy number, featuring a corseted bodice and a shaped skirt.

We love the addition of the crystal themed embellishment on the dress – it definitely adds a luxurious factor!

Matching peep-toe style heels and chunky jewellery pieces pull the look together.

We love the netted headpiece!

Of course, this look isn’t complete without eyewear.

They have included a pair of D&G shaped shades into the mix, which is such a clever way of incorporating the brand’s name into the outfit!

Androgynous Yet Feminine

This is definitely one of our favourite looks from the collection!

In this promo shot, the model is rocking an androgynous type ensemble with this longline suit jacket and bow tie.

The jacket is in a pale pink shade and features a vintage inspired floral print, adding a touch of femininity to the look.

Underneath this, a buttoned down shirt is worn with a pair of brocade themed trousers giving a bold print and colour clash!

Fishnet socks and strappy heels help to add some edge.

Accessories include a pair of LOVE glasses, which are so kooky and cool as well as a floral headpiece – we love them!

Pretty In Pink

We adore this feminine yet gothic inspired ensemble!

In this pic, the model is rocking a mini shift dress, which features an unusual cutlery inspired print decorated with a delicate lace trim.

White hosiery and jewelled heels, as well as a pretty velvet handbag complete the look.

We also love the addition of the statement jewellery pieces and floral headband – it helps to solidify the gothic feel.

Subtle Florals

Definitely one of the more subtler looks from the collection, this outfit is truly beautiful.

She is wearing a floor length ruffled dress, which features puffed sleeves – very 80’s-esque!

The floral print is very reminiscent of vintage fashion, and we love the subtlety of it.

Printed shoes, chain jewellery and a leopard printed belt complete the look well, not to mention the fantastic slogan headpiece.
