The extravagant new Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter collection was filled with crowns, regal streetwear, and Latin flair.
On Saturday, January 13th the unapologetically diverse brand kicked-off Milan Fashion Week by showcasing their latest Fall/Winter collection entitled King’s Angels. The anticipated show was filled with a plethora of materials, finishes, styles, and textures that awed the crowd.
The collection featured a significant amount of fitted, large lapel suits and tailcoats. Each ranged in colors from pink, lilac, green to the classic all black and came with either pinstripes, patterns, embroidery or all three. Velvet jackets were paired with silk pants and bejeweled slippers that made a statement from across the room.
Sequin shorts were worn with striped, embroidered oversized sweatshirts and a floral bomber jacket, accessorized with a backpack which resembled a golden angel. Each piece shown told a story and brought out a new emotion from everyone who attended the showcase.
One emotion that was prevalent during the event was “pride.” Pride was felt throughout the crowd as Latino superstars Maluma, Horacio Pancheri, Juan Pablo Zurita and José Pablo Minor walked the show.
The Hispanic community acquired a huge win this weekend when the Italian powerhouse took a groundbreaking approach and featured a Latin star-studded show. Although this is not the first time Dolce & Gabbana featured Latin stars as part of their demonstration, it is the first time a Latino reggaetón singer walked and closed an event during fashion week singing their own tunes.
The artist in charge of making history in the Hispanic community and closing out the event was Maluma, a 23-year-old Colombian singer-songwriter with a vision of changing the way reggaetón is perceived.
Filled with catchy beats and unapologetic words reggaeton was once known as “the tunes of the streets.” In spite of this, the catchy genre has quickly become a nationwide phenomenon that continues to break language barriers.
“Who would’ve thought I would be the one to take reggaetón to the fashion capital of Italy?!” he captioned an image he shared on his Instagram account.
He also thanked Dominico and Stefano for the opportunity of being part of their event in such a big way.
Maluma dazzled the crowd wearing a gold metallic suit with black trim detailing, paired with a simple bow tie and classic black loafers. He sang his latest hits “Felices Los 4” and “Corazon” both nominated for a Latin Grammy.
Dolce & Gabbana continues to break the rules one fashion show at a time.
