Milan Fashion Week: D&G

Madonna's 1990 megahit "Vogue" was blaring from the sound system at D&G. But Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's collection took those of us in the audience old enough to remember back a few years before that to the mid-eighties heyday of London fashion stars like Katharine Hamnett and Bodymap's David Holah and Stevie Stewart. Do you recall George Michael's "Choose Life" T-shirt from Wham's video for "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go"? There was nothing quite as political as Hamnett's anti-drug slogan to be found in Milan today. The message of the duo's "Talking About You" tee and the show as a whole: in a word, fun.
