Beniamino Marini reports on Milan Fashion Week

Dear Shaded Viewers,

A quick take on Dolce & Gabbana and Romeo Gigli by Beniamino Marini.

Dolce & Gabbana go back to Sicily (with the coppola hats) and mix it with Irish-British working class kids out of a Ken Loach movie. The furs were like the monsters on the Giant’s causeway (Northern Ireland) at least that is how they appeared to me…
There was a lot of crocodile, even the croc jacket had woolen sleeves.
The soundtrack was the Beatles.
