We’ve seen some wild things on the runway for fashion month, from the severed heads Gucci sent down the catwalk to Libertine’s insane fringe nail art, and we’re not done quite yet! Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana sent some rather unexpected surprises down the runway in the form of a few non-human models to show off its latest collection of handbags.
The show was unconventional before it even started, with Fashionista reporting that announcements in multiple languages were made over loudspeakers asking guests to turn off their WiFi and mobile hotspots. Forty-five minutes later, the audience was treated to a display of actual drones flying around the crowd before carting bejeweled leather handbags out onto the runway to the tune of church bells mixed with Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s “All of the Stars.”
After the tech-enhanced opening, actual models — including Princess Diana’s niece, Lady Kitty Spencer (who strutted her stuff in a tiara) — came out to showcase the designer’s “Fashion Devotion”-themed looks.
The collection had a spiritual feel in addition to its tech motif, with some of the pieces including cherub detailing, references to saints and sinners, and even an outfit with a priest’s collar.
Talk about putting on a show!
