Herıtage meets the present at the #DGSS23 Men’s Fashıon Show
Dolce & Gabbana presented its spring-summer ’23 menswear collection on June 18 during Milan Men’s Fashion Week. Title “Re-Edition,” the brand looked to its archives to find some of its most iconic looks from the ’90s and 2000s. Some pieces, labeled “Re-Edition” were actual archival pieces with distinctive labels, while others were recreated in homage to the brand’s own Y2K aesthetic.
Quintessentially Dolce & Gabbana key looks from past collections abounded in today’s show, feeling like an updated, cool déjà vu—the hunky white ribbed tank top with matching no-logo underwear briefs; the perfectly tailored tux worn over ripped denims; the heavily embellished blazers and T-shirts redolent of Sicilian sacred imagery; the sexual see-through black lace shirts; the slim fitting stretchy pantsuits with oversized double-breasted jackets.
However, while 90s and 00s revival is already morphing past few years of womenswear, the menswear is far less daring when it comes to reinterpretation of the 90/00s. Here come Stefano and Domenico who for their latest Dolce & Gabbana menswear collection brought back some of the label’s classics alongside the most head-turning archive menswear pieces.
