Dolce & Gabbana have been around the block. Known for their overtly glamorous presentations of lavish luxury with a hearty injection of fun, today, that’s exactly what we got.

The brand’s Fall/Winter 2024 collection was titled “TUXEDO,” and it did what it said on the tin – for the most part, anyway. Models donned differing interpretations of tuxedos, which were deconstructed and rebuilt before our eyes. The collection weaved the structure of the traditionally menswear-leaning garments with the delicate sensuality of lingerie, as tailcoats revealed laced bralette tops, complimented by a skirt which was open at the front, a look replicated across the collection. We saw tailored jackets cut to mid and cropped lengths, fusing together a fierce structure with a feminine edge. 

Fur coats were front and centre, commanding the catwalk with an imposing dominance. Initially arriving in more muted, black styles, we later saw the collection give quiet luxury the middle finger with a Cruella de Ville-esque leopard-print coat, hat and bag. It put loud luxury front and centre, and stood out amongst the more muted colour scheme that dominated the display. 

If the Dolce disco was happening inside, there was one guest who was giving a fashionably late “look at me.” Dressed in a Black PVC-style floor-length coat, fastened at the waist and worn with a matching hat and square-framed sunglasses, this was a paparazzi-pulling look that took us right back to the 90s. 

Black and gold polka dots pranced down the runway, with the opulent colour scheme used to craft semi-sheer dresses and blouses completed with feathered detailing to the neck. A further cocktail-party cool was thrown into the mix as silver shimmering tops were tucked into the cumberbund of tailored knee-length shorts, with the sparkly hue later applied to skirts and dresses. Naomi Campbell closed the party with a show-stopping lace bralette and bow-filled satin skirt, a powerful look that embodied the collection’s theme.

When it came to accessories, dainty handbags were carried under models’ arms, and silk gloves partially covered its wearer’s hands. This further pushed Dolce & Gabbana’s world-famous femininity front and centre, aided by sparkly stilettos, which were also completed with bow detailing. 

Dolce & Gabbana wanted us to get down and party for Fall/Winter 2024, seen in a catwalk filled to the brim with lavish takes on eveningwear, which merged menswear staples and rammed them with a party girl cool.
