Milan Fashion Week marches on. Sometimes Dolce & Gabbana can be the opposite of Prada: Where Miucca is all prim, buttoned up and lady-like, Domenico and Stefano tend to design va-va-voom leopard print bustiers and the like. The Spring 2009 collection was shown last night, and it seemed to be inspired by one of the most comfortable, amazing and soothing items of clothing ever produced: Pajamas. There were pajamas peeking out from under coats, pajamas worn as daytime rompers, pajamas as evening wear, pajama-like robes as cocktail dresses! If the idea is to go out and party and then just get into bed without changing, it is genius. Oh, there were also some weird ideas: Exaggerated shoulders, dresses with hip wings — but the pajamas made up for them. Plus, the fabric flower-encrusted gowns at the end of the show were romantic, dreamy, and right out of a Boucher portrait.
