Dolce&Gabbana school collection, plus-size model becomes H&M new face
September is coming, which means fashion brands release lookbooks for school uniforms for kids. Just recently, Alessandro Michele presented the latest Gucci Fall/Winter 2016-2017 kids collection. And then Dolce&Gabbana followed suit. Both Gucci and Dolce&Gabbana offer kids to wear checkered prints with their clothing. Dresses, skirts, socks, jackets and even backpacks – all of these items have been embroidered with checkered blue and red colors. Apart from that fashionable print, the brand also offers to pay attention to the grey and red colors, which will suit pretty much any student. There are also items with a floral print and other embroideries. But the most notable item of the Dolce&Gabbana collection is backpacks, which the brand designed with various funny-looking portraits. — In other news, plus size model Ashley Graham, who is the first non-skinny girl featured on the cover of Maxim, became the face of the new collection of popular mass-market brand H&M. As always, Graham urged girls to disregard the stereotypical beauty standards and love themselves the way they are. In H&M latest fashion campaign, Graham presented a beige coat, a floor-length dress in the boho style, a velvety striped bathrobe, white blouse, a corset made of costume fabric, maxi-skirt with a high waist as well as various accessories – hat with tassels, high boots with reptile skin, rings, puses and scarfs. H&M latest collection, presented by Ashley Graham, will hit store stands in September this year. Over 16 years of being a model, Ashley Graham became the first plus-size model to be featured on the pages of Sports Illustrated. She also became the face of the body-positive swimsuit campaign Swimsuit For All, in which she went makeup-free. Ashley Graham also presented a line of bridal plus-size lingerie. But most importantly the plus-size model has motivated thousands of women around the world to love their bodies the way they are.
