Many designers are moving in on the trendy military inspired clothing for his or her collections. Some of these designers include Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, and Dolce & Gabbana. For years, military inspired clothing appeared to only have masculine style elements but now many designers are going in the direction of incorporating military fashion garments with more femininity. Designers are using khaki and olive colors, camouflage, aviator jackets and double-breasted coats to make up their military inspired pieces.
To show how military fashion has been an inspiration for designers, I wanted to show my favorite military inspired collection from Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2006 RTW. Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce definitely showed what military fashion was all about in this collection. War conceptualized this collection as a theme with its military color pallet and strong detailed appearance of a Napoleonic military uniform. Military tailcoats, tight knickers, jodhpurs, and high riding boots were all essential in making this magnificent military inspired collection. I loved how the skirts were applied with the jackets to give it a feminine silhouette. I love the military inspired fashion and I know that designers will continue to design with it in mind for the future.
