Oh the delicious humour of hearing the very tongue-in-cheek ode to damsel’s in distress from Kill Bill 2 as Dolce & Gabbana’s city superheroes and workmen saviours leisurely carved open the catwalk like knives through a ripe peach. It was like seeing tens of Clark Kent’s wearing mirrored shades walking towards me and frankly, speaking as a red-blooded woman, it was fabulous. Darlings that’s not just good PR, it’s Prrrrr. For some, the Dolce and Gabbana man is a little flash, a little cheeseball, on other days I could agree but in today’s show Stefano and Domenico’s men looked damn cool. A sharp, slate black, slim-cut suit with the merest hint of a collar opened on the runway. Yes, the removal of a collar in menswear can be big news, especially when it’s cut to enhance the charm and aplomb that every man can possesses - found with the aid of a good tailor, I’d like to add. Subtle diamond shaped collars on similarly smooth suits followed. Imagine Reservoir Dogs meets a hint of 50s quiff and you have the base note of this collection that opened to present more. The suits were interspersed with casual wear where latticed material appeared on jumpers, across shorts, jumpsuits, shoes and leather jackets. The lattice might take a little consideration for men perusing this collection on the shop floor next summer but do check out the lattice trench, it’s worth a gander. The palette was all the shades of nearly black: midnight aubergine, darkest peacock, the deepest violet. Serious fashion critics may snub my appreciation of today’s overt display of sultry manhood but at the end of the day isn’t that what it’s all about, doesn’t every man want to be respected by his peers and exude a little je ne sais quoi (secret: the ‘quoi’ can simply be a good suit) and attention from those he finds attractive? Well this lot definitely had my full attention today, I was pinned to my seat.


Soundtrack: Shivaree’s Goodnight Moon from the albums ‘I Outta Give You A shot In The Head For Making Me Live In This Dump’ and ‘Kill Bill: Vol 2’
