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.
