Pajama Party - Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 RTW Collection

Natasha Poly in the show closing garment - fabulous!

MILAN, September 25, 2008
A preshow video named the collection "Pigiama Barocco." That meant classic gentlemen's silk pajamas, spotted or striped, with lots of bejeweling in the models' hair and on brooches, for starters. Big poufy skirts came into it, too, and tiered-lace cardigans, and then gilded brocades that took a sideways segue into some of those flat, exaggerated geometric constructions that are popping up all over.

For evening, the designers also nailed a couple more rising trends: mini-crinis in bouncing semi-sheer skirts, and sumptuously encrusted paillette embroideries. Finale-wise, it was all-out with romantic ball skirts studded with roses. In other words, not a whiff of economic anxiety was detectable within these four walls, and that in itself was curiously cheering.

Here's a gown from the Dolce & Gabbana Srping 2009 RWT Collection worn by model Diana Farkhullina (left) that is very similar to the Dolce & Gabbana gown worn by January Jones (right) to the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards.
