This was an anti-demographically specific show—all, together, now—meant to reflect Dolce & Gabbana’s yesterday, today, and tomorrow. “LIke in Il Gattopardo,” said Gabbana, “when Trancredi says, “For everything to stay the same, everything must change,”D&G Runway

This collection was called DNA Evolution, and its invitation, also posted online, was pre-show homework: a video dedicated to classifying the elements that make up their brand. Made up of 10 categories, and a further 40 oppositions, these included “velvet v brocade,” “sacred v profane,” “erotic v Catholic,” and “pasta v tomato.”
