Dolce and Gabbana will dress us like Her Majesty the Queen

Hilary Alexander reports from Milan Fashion Week

The Queen should be chuckling over her breakfast tray this morning for she has been turned into a 21st century style icon at Milan Fashion Week.

D&G took inspiration from Her Majesty’s traditional dress code
Her Majesty’s traditional dress code for holidays in Balmoral provided the inspiration for Dolce & Gabbana’s entire D&G diffusion collection today in the Italian fashion capital.

The design duo of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, well-known for their tongue-in-cheek take on all things British, played out a real highland romp on the catwalk.

Kilts, twinsets and caped-waterproofs all came in for a fashion makeover, accessorized with the Queen’s favourite accessory – the heraldic headscarf, knotted, of course, under one’s chin.

There were even brogues and wellies – but they were multi-coloured, patent leather or snakeskin and stack-heeled. And it is a moot point as to whether the Monarch has ever indulged a taste for tartan tights.

Too bad for D&G; most Sloanes already have their own versions of this kit.
