Dolce & Gabbana
With live-streamed shows, immediate eCommerce, and front-row Twitter pictures, there's no question that social networking has sped up the metabolism of the fashion industry. This was no more evident than on the runway at Dolce & Gabbana, where large screens projected live backstage footage and tweets and text messages that displayed comments such as: "D&G are so cool!!!!" and "Ciao!!!!" The collection picked up on this youthful vibe, with bold prints, short skirts, skinny pants, and a rock'n'roll vibe. Fabrics were, as always, loud: musical-note prints, large cartoon stars, and the line's signature leopard print. And from the looks of the structured jackets, bowler hats, brogues, neckties, and suspenders, it looks like the menswear trend will be sticking around for at least another year.
