Spring 2012 - Dolce and Gabbana

Thanks to Dolce and Gabbana, there is a huge possibility that come 2012 summer, the whole vegetable stall could be in your wardrobe! Imagine a dress with garlic on it? How exactly how do you make onions sexy? Well... thats exactly what Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have managed to serve for their runway collection. Besides onions and garlic, we have tomatoes, courgettes, lemons, chillis, aubergine, plums and oranges.

The inspiration for the collection was actress Sophia Loren at her sexiest when she danced the mambo in a 1955 Italian film. Besides the veggies from the kitchen, there was a set of lace and crochet cocktail dresses and a finale of their signature corsets encrusted to the hilt in colorful crystals.

Surely, it looks a little too kitsch for comfort, but it is for summer and when else can you do it. After a few too many years of playing safe... this year looks like the designers are finally ready to stand out of the crowd and look unique. Love.
