If you could distil the D&G SS12 Womens wear show what essence would you get? Foulard’s. These traditional, sometimes oldy-worldly accessories have been totally reinvented by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana and have become sexy and relevant once again.

The D&G collection for SS 12 is a real plethora of prints. From geometric to heraldic, from baroque to naïf, passing by polka dolts and stripes, the foulard, in its many forms has been adopted by the design duo and reinvented for 2012. With the idea of deconstructing the typically bourgeois silk handkerchief and challenging its traditional use, Dolce and Gabbana have created a significant collection with strong cultural overtones.

Taking the foulard in its purest form, (each swatch measures the traditional 70x70cm), as the foundation of the collection, the Italian design duo have created a visual feast. Unlike previous collections where mix and matching were at their centre, this season the effect is less like patchwork and more about actually tying together multiple handkerchiefs, lending it a more cerebral feel. Details like folds and knots take the collection away from the banal, giving it a fresh angle.

Worthy of particular mention are the sky-high platform wedges. The upper is made of an entire foulard; 70×70, which tied around the foot becomes a silky, light as a feather peep toe bootie. In contrast, the wedge is made of wood and is printed with a different style.  Dolce Gabbana.IT
