Even though the Dolce and Gabbana collection for fall may have seemed all over the place, the Baroque (call it Gothic if you like) touches were a constant reminder of the beauty of it all. The standard D&G shapes- bloomer with a bloussant shirt, emphasis on the waist for corseted dresses and second skin embroideries- were all there, but seemed to take on a life of their own this season when the mood in Milan and elsewhere has been rather dark. Come fall, those Marie Antoinette-inspired platforms will be the number one item on my wish list, not for my feet, but rather as a piece of art for my home. File as maj.
