Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2019 Menswear Collection Review
Description
Editing and modernizing—two things Dolce & Gabbana needed to do with their Fall 2019 Menswear collection. Their latest line was simply too old-school, borderline costumey, with little to no contemporary edge about it. They may as well have picked up costumes from a period film, added a few touches of sportswear, and put their own label on them!

If you search the word ‘unnecessary’ in the dictionary, you might find this Dolce & Gabbana show up there as its definition. This isn’t to say, however, that it didn’t have any beauty in it. In over 128 looks, the Italian design duo’s latest Fall 2019 Menswear line was a tribute to traditional masculine dressing. From elegant sportswear to old-school suiting, the show was a parade of modernized 20th-century gentlemen decorated and embellished with the pair’s distinct Sicilian touches. Though most of the tuxedos and pajama-style ensembles were stellar, we can’t help but feel tired of all this rehashing. Granted Dolce & Gabbana is all about upholding traditional and elegant styles, we were desperate for something new from them, and on this front, they failed miserably. The slight tinges of sportswear by way of stylized tracksuits and sneakers weren’t enough to convince us that these looks had any place in the 21st-century paradigm of menswear. And the garish colors and overwhelming baroque touches didn’t help either! In essence, these were just old clothes made new again, which is not what fashion is nor should be about. It’s been years since Dolce & Gabbana brought something new to the table, and they’re starting to become irrelevant (if not for the shameful controversies of Stefano Gabbana).
