Is sexy always when the woman wear a true men's shirt,
00:04
but with a cut is more sexy.
00:07
♫ Oh, you better step away
00:09
♫ Number one in heaven with a bullet
00:13
♫ I'll go for you when I can

Welcome back to Throwback Thursdays.
00:21
I'm Tim Blanks, and today we're visiting
00:23
with fashion's dynamic duo, Dolce and Gabbana.
00:26
There's a story worth sharing.
00:29
This show is from spring 2003,
00:32
by which time Dolce and Gabbana were a fashion institution.
00:35
You notice the word sex written large
00:38
around the models' throats.
00:39
I think what Dolce and Gabbana always have done
00:42
brilliantly is sell sex.
00:45
All the time expressing this in incredibly precise
00:48
and sophisticated technique, wonderful embellishment,
00:51
great use of color, their embroideries and their beading
00:54
contrasted with this very Catholic severity.
00:57
It's given their collections such a strong personality.
00:59
I think you can identify a Dolce and Gabbana outfit
01:02
very, very easily.
01:04
So we play with a mix and match again,
01:07
but with things really new for Dolce and Gabbana.
01:10
Like astronaut, like sailor, like antique Rome.
01:14
But we start the fashion show with the old clothes,
01:17
old Dolce and Gabbana.
01:18
Really old from vintage.
01:20
You know, like the sewed, the corset,
01:24
the pants like Naomi.
01:26
She wear exactly in '86, and she wear again today.
01:30
[Tim] They also used a wonderful retinue of models
01:33
from the heyday of the supermodel era.
01:36
♫ Oh, oh, oh, oh
01:41
(mumbling)
01:50
[Tim] Domenico Dolce was famously born in Sicily.
01:53
His father was a tailor,
01:54
so he had a genetic predisposition
01:56
to all this stuff already.
01:57
Stefano Gabbana on the other hand,
01:59
was a Ferrucci-loving northerner.
02:01
Together, they made the most extraordinary chemistry.
02:04
They began as outsiders
02:07
in the Milanese fashion establishment.
02:09
But obviously over time, they have become embassadors
02:13
for what the rest of the world
02:15
thinks of as Italian style now.
02:18
Everything that made them so refreshing at the beginning
02:22
can still be found today.
02:26
And I for one, am very, very grateful
02:28
that they continue to be a part of the Milan fashion scene.
02:32
(energetic music)
02:37
With all great doubles acts, everyone has a favorite.
02:40
Who's yours, Dolce or Gabbana?
02:42
This is Throwback Thursdays, I'm Tim Blanks.
