Modern Cultural Movement

Dolce & Gabbana brought a brand new era of print to the fashion world during Milan Fashion Week. The entire show had such a rich scent of Art and History. It was like being in a time machine and bringing us back into the Renaissance in Italy and the prints reminded me of paintings by Da Vinci although I know the prints were not extracted from his art works. All the prints and clothes were perfectly matched with the printed head scarves on models and made them really look like coming from the 14th to 17th century Italian farms or small towns (forgive my description, I am so bad at History) in a good way. It always inspires me how designers can bring vintage elements into modern designs even the fashion world is changing rapidly. Something seems being forgotten by people will always come back and it shows how great fashion design is. There are a lot of prints and bold colours in lots of fashion week shows this year. In Dolce & Gabbana, the prints were kind of mixture of Herm√®s's or Versace's even Givenchy's signature prints, which came out looking great, and I wonder how it feels in those dresses made with straw-like materials. The chunky earrings and colourful embroidered wedges show a touch of summer and make people welcoming seashore full of beach umbrellas.
