Wake me up before you GO-GO

D&G AW11

D&G took us back to George Michael’s “Choose Life” t-shirt from that Wham video that we love to hate – “Wake me up before you GO-GO”. It’s reminded me of mid-eighties London Fashion. Katharine Hamnett and her political t-shirts and Bodymap’s David Holah and Stevie Stewart. D&G definitely didn’t want people to take the collection to serious and that’s probably what the fans of the show want from them. Fun, loud and youth. The models glided down that catwalk to Madonna’s 1990 hit “Vogue” in hues of acid yellow, bright orange and highlighter pink. Not everyone’s cup of tea but they didn’t mind. There was alphabet print everywhere on long floaty dresses and tight black and white leggings. There were converse-like high-heeled sneakers and plastic charm necklaces that I could see my 15 year old sister wearing. Eighties oversized acid blazers and cropped jumpers in black and yellow, black and yellow (8). A lot of colour was splatted everywhere, even on the runaway. It’s always nice to see D&G signature chiffon floaty dresses that one day, I will buy! I love the alphabet printed blouse in dark pink, that’s something that I would consider buying. Everything else is a little too Stephen Sprouse for me but I can definitely see girls younger rocking it.
