Dress Code: Black Tie
May 21, 2015
Much more than just a passing trend, the formal suit represents history and appeal: it respresents a lifestyle, that something extra, a way to stand out from the crowd. And yet traditional Black Tie has been a part of the true gentleman's wardrobe for years. What man wouldn't want to be a bon vivant, and what woman wouldn't want a man in black tie by her side.
DSquared2 propose slim fit suits for the modern man, made in Italy with materials like cool wool or silk. For a formal yet elegant look we recommend the Paris fit, meanwhile for the gentleman that loves the timeless appeal of the tuxedo, the Tokyo fit, with satin shawl collar.
Sartorial suits by the eponymous Dolce & Gabbana include the 'Martini' in cool wool and silk complete with a satin trimmed gilet, and 'Gold', perfect for a gala evening. Meanwhile direct from the catwalk high end styles will appeal to those who appreciate reinterpreted classic designs: shawl collars are rounded even more than usual, the inner becomes an vintage inspired gilet, and the fit is slimmer to suit a man who is determined and loves style.
From Marcello Mastroianni in "La dolce vita" to the eponymous James Bond, Black Tie is an iconic piece in every gentleman's wardrobe: the most impeccable dress code
For an obligatory white cotton long-sleeved shirt try Dell'Oglio or Dsquared2. For those who are heading to an important event, Dolce & Gabbana's shirt with plastron and contrasting mother of pearl buttons. Finishing touches are of the utmost importance: a bow-tie is the emblem of elegance in silk satin or black grosgrain. Dell'Oglio offers a wide selection of bow-ties in various materials and prints to suit every occassion. Look no further than Dolce & Gabbana for classic signature styles. The importance of shoes should not be underestimated: we recommend elegant patent leather brogues by Church's, Dolce & Gabbana and Dsquared2.
