Polka dot it’s a print rarely unseen in designer’s collection, and this year they shined in Dolce&Gabbana newest collection. This print originally started in UK in the late 19th century and since then we see it everywhere: from clothes to furniture. I’m going to talk only about clothes cause that’s what I’m good at.
We all seen the new D&G collection where is hard to see a piece without polka dots on, and it was a risky move to make especially when this print can be very “heavy” if you dont get the volumes right, but when you are Dominico and Stefano is hard to not get it right.
As a little history lesson, in the 20’s Lanvin launched a polka dot the best of swimsuit featured in Vogue.
From the 30’s designers took this trend more seriously and started including it more in the high fashion industry. In the 50’s many designers including Christian Dior, Pierre Balmain and Jaques Griffe had an all polka dot dress.
The 300€ Moschino isn’t much different from the cheaper version (find it here here )
