Dolce & Gabbana: A Fairy Tale is “Frozen”

Princesses can wear scarlet uniforms as well as frilly, flowery dresses

It started with a fairy tale offering for Instagram users - a "mirror, mirror on the wall" for a Snow White photo op in the foyer. Next at the Dolce & Gabbana show, came a line-up of dangling chandeliers in the theatre and, at the end of the fashion runway, a golden coach.

Cinderella in all her guises — except as a ragged little creature - was at the heart of the inspiration of Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce. She appeared in a sparkling dress and spiky footwear (Where was the glass slipper?). She also put on a scarlet parade uniform to prove that in today's fairy tales, the girls could kick around the boys.

Disney - and especially the hit movie Frozen - inspired the duo to take a fresh look at what it means to be a princess. Clue number one: you get to have a dress marked with images of the designer's cats. "We wanted to give the audience a smile, dreams of happiness — we know that real life is different, but our job is to give something lighter to the people," said Domenico, while Stefano said they wanted to create a look of Frozen "because it is possible to give people a beautiful dream." There was a touch of Alice in Wonderland madness about the show and its clothes.

By the time a Disney army of models strode out in any colour as long as it was pink and sprinkled with sparkles, the show looked like a holiday outing for kids. I would go as a flower princess in a vast coat smothered with roses — rather than in an outfit that Cinderella's helpful little mice embroidered all over. 

But behind the childlike expressions and on the very day of the Academy Awards in Los Angeles, Dolce & Gabbana caught a sense of innocence and charm that is mostly missing from fashion. This collection may go down best with cutie pie Japanese shoppers. But such is the quality of the work, especially the tailoring, it could fulfil many other women's dreams.

I asked Domenico and Stefano if we would see any of the pieces at the Oscars. "Too far away," they said. What! Even in a magic golden carriage?
