Dolce and Gabbana leave the trousers out for fall 2010


There are many reasons that women around the world worship at the altar of Dolce and Gabbana. Whether they love their figure framing corsets or their wild animal prints, every owner of a piece from the Dolce and Gabbana empire has had a religious experience when that item of clothing was added to their collection. 

Personally, we don’t just love how the clothes look. We love that both Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana put all the passion that they have in life into every piece of clothing that they design. Even after so many years of pumping out collection after collection of women’s wear these two men still enjoy creating masterpieces to decorate bodies everywhere. So when Dolce and Gabbana decide they want to focus a collection on  women’s body while leaving the concept of trousers out, almost completely, the world does not blink an eye…instead we sit up straighter in our seats and wonder how to translate this look into an everyday possibility. 

Surely we can’t all go around dressing as if we are Lady Gaga. Fear not readers…we do not believe these two talents are not intending for you to do so. By taking away the trousers we are shocked, yes, but also allowed to concentrate more fully on the pieces that are laid out before us along with the exposed leg. Simply look at the first picture on the far left, above.  As the legs are nearly bare, minus some black velvet hotpants, we are forced to take a closer look at the masterfully cut jacket that the model is wearing. Sure, this could have been done with a pair of black cigarette pants but why go down a road that every designer seems to travel every single season? Shock is better suited for the catwalk. Everyone knows that catwalk is rarely translated literally onto the sidewalk. 

Here’s a look at some of the more classic garments that Dolce and Gabbana sent down the runway:
