The D&G SS12 collections had a clear directional concept: foulards. Mixed with denim, fashioned into mini dresses, maxi dresses or culottes, the message is clear: foulards. Spring is in full swing and summer is just around the corner. The holidays are coming up and we’re all in angst over how to work the trends when wearing little more than a bikini. The D&G collection comes to our rescue with cute day outfits and sexy eveningwear for men and for women.
For a day look that screams beach party, opt for silk twill foulard print culottes with a matching shirt. Tie it round the waits to show off your toned tum and channel that Seventies vide. Finish with a large raffia hat, with its own foulard and sky-high wood and silk twill foulard wedges. Interestingly, the wedges are created with a whole handkerchief measuring 70cmx70cm.
For a stroll in town, this mix and match foulard ensemble is the perfept Capri-esque look. Silk twill tailored trousers a contrasting foulard print shirt are demure yet fashion forward. Hone in on the contrast with yet more foulard prints for the shoes and bag. Make a statement with gold mirrored sunglasses for a traffic halting style.
And for the evening step out in this mini baby doll dress made entirely of foulards. Like the shoes, each piece is a whole handkerchief. To emphasize the idea, this mini dress is detailed with knots, which seem to hold the dress together. The gold coin statement jewellery make a gypsy come seventies diva statement that will not go unnoticed.
The maxi dress is a pillar of the D&G DNA. Snap it up in SS12’s foulard print. In sensual chiffon, the dress flows and brushes the body in a sensual wave. In a typical mix and match style, the SS12 version is a real fashion statement. Wear it with coin embellished flat Capri style sandals for a high glamour summer look.
