The latest show for D&G was called “Women,” through which the duo wanted to offer a homage to all women and what sensuality looks like in real life. 

In reality,  though, the start of the show became about one woman – Kylie Jenner – who caused the event to be delayed for nearly 1 hour due to her late arrival. 

Once underway, Dolce & Gabbana presented a sensual collection for SS24, featuring lingerie as outwear, sheer fabrics and shades of black and white.

As a mark of inclusivity, there were models of different generations – including runway veterans Naomi Campbell and Irina Shayk – and plus-size model Ashley Graham. “We want to celebrate more mature women. Everybody talks about the new generations, but it’s important to look to women of all ages and shapes,” Domenico Dolce said.

Italian women and the house’s own archives also played big in terms of inspiration for the show. Along with looking further back in 20th-century fashion.

Discussing the new capsule, the house explained that 1960s-era textures and the “timeless elegance” of the decade, as well as “grace, allure and the house’s signature codes” inspired the duo for SS24. 

The eyewear featured in the collection had clear 60s inspiration, meanwhile, there was an interplay with classic D&G elements, such as different iterations of leopard print at several points in the collection.
