One of the world's biggest  names, Dolce and Gabbana, has managed to again serve menswear  the timeless sophistication gentlemen want. But the Italian's are always a step ahead in the fashion world, and the trends that come from Milan take over not just in the boot-looking country, but internationally. The fishnet look with the ribbed fabrics was a definite focal point for head designers Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce. Dolce and Gabbana's menswear cohesive line brought slate colored clothing back into spring. The rich reddish/ purple color seen throughout the show definitely changes the trend from this year drastically. Apparently color blocking is so 2011. And, while we're talking about something new, probably there most avant-garde look(s) had to have been those jumpsuits. I couldn't tell if they were going for mechanic meets menswear or inspired by Dickies, but even so, I wouldn't be opposed to trying it on. Us fashionista/os have those days when we're feeling extra confident and decide to wear something a little out there. But I can tell you the absolute hit of this show, for me, aside from the fish nets had to have been the sunglasses. Oversized wayfarer pointy lenses of perfection in several different colors. By the time they are released, it will probably be the time of year when new expensive sunglasses are in order. As of now, these are at the top of my list, sunny-side. Other items that should be taken into account are the saddleback shoes, the oversized tote, the shorts, and if you are like me and plan on re-watching certain parts over again, then quite obviously the men of Dolce and Gabbana. Impeccable casting for the show... It's because gays know how to do it right ;)
