D&G Fall 2010: Ski Bunnies In Fur Shorts (!)

Today in Milan, the D&G show appealed to ladies who love Aspen, Vail, or Gstaad. And to ladies who love cozy knits. And to ladies who love sweaters with reindeer on them. And to ladies who love fur.

I see London, I see France, I see your large "pussy" bow and blousy slevees, which make me think of Lily Tomlin in 9 To 5.

A tough leather jacket over a floaty frock — wrapped up with an extra-long muffler — is a charming, if highly impractical, fall ensemble.

Ladies and gentlemen. Fur. Shorts.

I would really like buy a récamier or fainting couch, and then find out the price of these shorts, and then swoon and collapse into a luxurious luxury stupor of WTF.

I think the little reindeer and snowflakes give the sweaters a homey, hand-made feel, even though it's likely that they're pricier than a trip to Banff.

So there's this scene in Who's That Girl — the seminal film starring Madonna and Griffin Dunne, son of Dominick, where Madonna, playing a thief named Nikki, is pretending to be the sister of Dunne's character, blue-bood Loudon Trott.

A snooty jewelry store clerk says: Sister? I wasn't aware Mr. Trott had a sister.

Nikki: Been away a few years.

Jeweler: Boarding school?

Nikki: Board school, right.

Jeweler: Switzerland?

Nikki: Excuse me?

Jeweler: I said, was the school Swiss?

Nikki: Sure. Sure, one of the Swissest.

This is a Swissest Boarding School outfit.

I had to include this, because I was wondering what the bloomers looked like from the rear. Here is the answer. Also: A zipper in the crack? Sounds… dangerous. And cold.
