The chiseled models who walked the runway at Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall/Winter 2016 showing bore ensembles that clearly drew heavy inspiration from the bandits, gunslingers and lawmen of the Wild West, but in the conspicuous absence of their trusty Smith & Wessons and buffalo rifles were decidedly alien gadgetry that these frontiersmen held outstretched and facing their own visages — iPad mini tablets with clip-on external lenses affixed to the front-facing cameras. In the wake of forward-thinking, navel-gazing campaigns by Diesel’s Nicola Formichetti (think advertising on Grindr and Pornhub), Dolce & Gabbana’s ‘Sicilian Western’-themed collection might very well have been an equation of the Internet and social media as our new Wild West, the vast frontier of our modern society; and the selfie-obsessed Clint Eastwoods of Instagram, our pioneers into Indian territory.

Social commentary aside, this latest collection bore many of the extravagant sartorial excesses that the Italian duo have become known for — namely whip-stitched knits, Western topstitching, and no shortage of intricate beadwork and embroidery over all manner of Italian tailoring. Exaggerated shearling coats and velvet blazers bookended the collection, which was a prime example of the designers’ penchant for injecting a childlike element into their clothes. One thing’s for sure: in 2016, the Man With No Name probably has several hundred thousand followers on Instagram.
