Only one thing was more ripped than the denim at D&G today, and it was the boys on display. In their finale walk, all were topless and so extraordinarily pumped that it wasn’t a far stretch to imagine them doing a few quick sets of press-ups (or shots of ‘roids) before they exited backstage. Invitations came in the form of vintage print silk scarves like the ones designed by Hermes and Gucci that vintage hunters scour for at flea markets. Those scarf prints formed the basis for the entire collection – featuring on everything from a pair of shorts to a cropped blazer, a shirt to drop-crotch pants. Mixed with the aforementioned shredded denim jeans and shirts, the offering felt very Versace-of-the-90s – never so evident than in a silk bomber that will no doubt be a hipster staple come summer. With a banging soundtrack that included Prince and James Brown, D&G win the award for the most entertaining show of the week.
