The physique and the panther stride are the same as always, as if time never passed for Naomi Campbell, protagonist of the hymn to ageless sensuality staged by Dolce and Gabbana in the fashion show for next summer 2024 at Milan Fashion Week.
On the catwalk, among lace, self-supporters, veiled stockings, chiffon dresses, transparencies and exposed underwear, models of different generations, from 25-year-old Vittoria Ceretti to the more mature Irina Shayk, Natasha Poly, Mariacarla Boscono. A fresco of sensuality in black and white, with polka dots and spotted touches, for "a tribute to all women and a great tribute to the older ones and their sensuality."
"This time "we did not want to look only at social media and the new generations because - explain Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana - we looked around and we saw that today everything has changed, mothers and daughters dress similarly. We wanted to respect women, who are timeless, like affections, and we carried this feeling also in clothes".
Style from the Dolce and Gabbana collection
In a game of parts, on the catwalk are the more mature women who wear the sexiest clothes, such as PVC trench coats that reveal underwear and garters, tulle bustier dresses, white and seductive lace garments, blouson with coulottes, guepiers and chiffon shirts, while the younger ones show off tailored jackets with oversized shoulders, Flat sock boots, dry trousers or pinstripe bermudas, airplane dresses with large or small polka dots and sheath dresses with white embroidered bib. They are the ones who wear the new tuxedo, spotted trench coats, maxi furs and coats without half measures, very short or very long, because "this - say the creatives - is not a fashion, but a style". "After 60 years, - they say - we asked ourselves what is the style of the Italian woman, what everyone envies us, the femininity of our women, which for us is a natural elegance and never out of place. The woman is timeless beautiful and these garments are out of season." For example, "the tailored jacket that sculpts your body has no time, it's like saying 'mom', Italianness is beautiful dressing, tailor-made". But also a lot, a lot of sensuality, which for Dolce and Gabbana "has no age, it belongs to those who have it. Why can't you put on transparencies at 40? It's not a matter of weight or age, but of your sensuality. If you have it, you have it and - they underline - you have to tell it without prejudice. We wanted to give security to all women who think 'I can't, I'm not old'.
The diva Naomi Campbell
The overcoming of the "old bourgeois mentality of self-censorship" was staged, almost an hour late, as often - the guests noted - happens when Naomi Campbell is there. Long hair, dry physique, the usual step of those who fear nothing, the 53-year-old supermodel - in underwear and garters veiled by stretch tulle, - was welcomed as a real diva, with applause at her exit on the catwalk. In addition to her, to show an unprejudiced sensuality, even a soft beauty like Ashley Graham in pink bustier. After the celebration of today's woman, tomorrow space for young people, with the launch of the capsule for him and for her created in collaboration with Blanco. The winner of Sanremo, who was a guest at the Metropol together with Bianca Balti and Kylie Jenner, will perform for 2000 guests at the former slaughterhouse in an evening that was announced on social media and was immediately sold out.
