Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana went all out for Spring/Summer 11 with a garden party theme for their latest collection. Sneaky pre-show twitpics revealed a set covered in (real!) flowers and seeds, making for a very colourful and summery show.

The boys brought summer to the catwalk with floral maxis and wooden wedges, lady-like blouses and loose fit shorts. Outfits were even finished off with floral aprons, very Stepford Wives ( but in a good way). We also saw Girly gingham prints in red and white on skirts and headscarfs, emphasising the garden party picnic feel. This theme even went as far as the accessories, with gloves and even what looked like a trowel poking out of a D & G bag.

Hair was sleek and straight and make up kept rosy and warm; indeed this was a collection that exuded summer through every single detail, and we loved it.
