"Dolce & Gabbana used drones to carry handbags down the runway instead of models"

First some background from December's "Fashion, Maslow and Facebook's control of social":
As mentioned in "IRAN reacts to U.S. President's Comments On Colin Kaepernick By Launching Missles While North Koreans Chant ‘Death to Trump’ Over Steph Currey Dis":
Due to threatened budget cutbacks we are considering consolidating our politics, sports, national security and fashion coverage....
Well, the cutbacks weren't just a threat, departments are being combined, which is why you've seen posts on the St. Louis Fed's FRED clothing line, 3D printed couture and such stories as:

European Bankers on Top of The League Tables For Fashion Sense
Barney's New York Introduces a $375 Antifa Jacket
This Father's Day, #Boycott Dolce & Gabbana.... this $245 #Boycott Dolce & Gabbana t-shirt: 
So, unfortunately for patient reader, the trend continues as the powers that be decree the cat video pivot now has to be combined with something as well. So here's strutting the catwalk. I am so sorry....
Thank goodness the subjects of the stories are now doing the combining for us!
From The Verge:

Because human models are so last season
It’s 2018, and as further proof that we’re already living in the future, what’s more fashionable than drones? Drones with handbags, according to Italian luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabanna, which sent a bunch of flying drones down its runway during the house’s fashion show in Milan on Sunday.
Fashionista reports that audience members were asked to turn off Wi-Fi on their phones, as well as any personal hot spots. The show was also 45 minutes late to start, and now we know why....MORE

We like D&G and not just for their response to a boycott threat from some group or other: this $245 #Boycott Dolce & Gabbana t-shirt:

At D&G's website.
Trolling is an art form.

Or, in the words of the philosopher Larry the Cable Guy:
"I don't care who you are, that's funny"

Although, truth be told, since they discontinued the By Dolce & Gabbana cologne I don't stop by as often.
I missed a trick on the cologne. When D&G discontinued the scent you could still procure it in size for $95-125. It's now being offered out at $400-500 on eBay albeit with the huge caveat: there are a lot of knock-offs.
Anyhoo somehow related to all of the above, the intro to 2017's "Fashion: Bernie Sanders Is the Inspiration For Balenciaga’s Fall 2017 Menswear Collection":
A couple weeks late to this but interesting as a reflection of bizarro world Zeitgeist.

That said however, should  Dolce & Gabbana come out with an Eau De Bernie I will probably just curl up in a corner of the office to await the end times....
