Dolce & Gabbana’s Androgynous Delight

23/03/2011, Dolce & Gabbana, Fall Winter 2011, Fashion and Style

Dolce & Gabbana’s fall/winter 2011 collection is definitely one of my favourites from Milan last month. It’s refreshing the power duo departed from their usual fare of delectable lace dresses and offered a new dressing proposition for fall: androgynous, gender-bending looks but still with the trademark Dolce & Gabbana tailoring, glitz and dazzle. I salivated over the front row because there were so many desirable pieces from the collection. The first thing I saw when I went backstage before the show was the pair of purple sequined trousers. Stefano Gabbana immediately pointed out they made it in three colors… and when I saw them on the runway during the show, BOOM!, it was a ME ME ME ME ME moment.

Bryanboy x Dolce & Gabbana Via Spiga Window Display

Dolce & Gabbana invited some of their favourite bloggers to dress up the Dolce & Gabbana Via Spiga 26 flagship store windows. I thought I'd take part in this amazing opportunity in spite of having ZERO visual merchandising experience. Boy, I had so much fun! Here's my window.

I've chosen my pieces carefully to reflect my spring/summer 2011 Dolce & Gabbana essentials: the lace dress, the gorgeous necklaces, the bejeweled shoe, the sheer shirt, the fringed skirt, a classic t-shirt and something leopard. To make my window interesting, I made a backdrop using enormous Dolce & Gabbana paper bags and added shoe boxes on the floor to pique the passerby's interest. I wish I had more time and resources but oh well. Until next time. I hope Stefano and Domenico are happy with my display.

I bumped into the legendary Pat McGrath backstage at Dolce & Gabbana earlier.

On a side note, I’m super excited to be working with her on something. You’ll find out soon. :-)

Uomini by Mariano Vivanco and Dolce & Gabbana

Uomini by Mariano Vivanco and Dolce & Gabbana

I quickly popped by the gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana menswear boutique (more like mansion) at Corso Venezia yesterday evening to visit my buddy Mariano Vivanco’s UOMINI book party. I’m a big fan of Mariano’s work and his new book, published by Dolce & Gabbana and Rizzoli, makes a great addition to my ever-growing collection of coffee table books. Now all I need is a table… and perhaps some coffee as well.

Dolce & Gabbana Menswear Fall Winter 2011 Full Show

Immaculate and impeccable tailoring as always from my favourite Italian duo, Dolce & Gabbana. I'm also happy they infused the collection with colour (red, maroon, burgundy, etc) this time around after several monochromatic seasons. The sequined fuschia jacket? It has my name on it. Adoro!

On a side note, how do you feel about the drop crotches?

Naomi needs little introduction. Naomi is NAOMI.

Naomi and I reunited once again at the Dolce & Gabbana spring/summer 2011 show in Milan.

Naomi Campbell

Some of you might remember the first time I met her was November of last year when I visited the Vogue Russia offices in Moscow.

It's a pleasure to have chatted to her. To be at her presence, to stare at her eyes, to look at her iconic face… unbelievable. She's absolutely beautiful and a nice person inside and out!

Oh, Mama Nay Nay also introduced me (via mobile phone) to another inspiring individual who I admire for years — Edward Enninful!

Dolce & Gabbana Spring Summer 2011 Final Walkthrough

Dolce & Gabbana Spring Summer 2011 Final Walkthrough

Here’s the view from my seat at the Dolce & Gabbana spring/summer 2011 fashion show in Milan over the weekend.

Domenico and Stefano sent out a battalion of a models in mostly white lace, embroidered and crocheted garments. I had a peep backstage and I must say I’m truly amazed with the craftmanship and tailoring of these clothes. Truly, madly, deeply, quintessentially Italian chic.

About The Other Night…

About The Other Night…

I found this cute photo of me at the Matthew Williamson for Bvlgari event at the Bvlgari Hotel the other night.

Jacket, necklace and fur bag from Dolce & Gabbana, sunglasses from Prada, t-shirt from Theory which I bought during Fashion's Night Out in NYC.

I've been here in Milan for over a week now and believe it or not, I haven't been partying that much. Compared to other seasons, I've been going home a wee bit before (or after) 12 midnight. I'm so swamped with work. Gone are the days of me staying OUT (there's a big difference between staying out and staying up) until the wee hours of the morning.

I've been complaining to a lot of people lately how I need someone to help me with my tasks. I can't do it all on my own. I know I need to step my game up but it's not that easy especially when you're on the road the whole day — on your own.

We'll see how I evolve over the next few months.

I'm off to Paris later tonight. By overnight train.

I'm very excited.
