The Fashion - Dolce & Gabbana's Real Models

Dolce & Gabbana used ''real men'' in their Milan Fashion Week show.

The fashion house decided against using models on the catwalk, instead sending 73 Sicilian men and boys aged between 12 and 43 - with occupations including student, house painter, barber, and waiter - down the runway accompanied by a live band in traditional costume.

Explaining the unusual showcase of the collection - which was largely monochrome linen, silk, light wool and chiffon - Steffano Gabbana said: ''We wanted to put our clothes on real men because fashion should be for real people.''

The show's finale saw all 73 men don dark suits and white jackets which were each slightly different to one another.

Elsewhere, Jil Sander made her return to her eponymous label, with her first collection in eight years showing an update to her signature minimalist style with colour and more modern cuts.

She said afterwards: ''It's good to be at home again.''

Christopher Bailey opted for metallic and florescent fabric in his Burberry Prorsum showcase, including a fuchsia pink trench coat, bright footwear and bags, shiny turquoise lapels on a classic tweed coat and a vivid electric blue bomber jacket.

For the more traditional consumer, there were classic slim-cut suits, raincoats, field jackets and oversized parkas.
