DOLCE & GABBANA
From the encounter of Sicily with Lombardy, Dolce&Gabbana was born in 1984.
The source of inspiration for designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana is the cinema of the 1940s and 1950s. For their creations, Domenico and Stefano look to a real, sensual, and Mediterranean woman.
The creative genius of the two designers is responsible for "the Sicilian dress", considered one of the 100 most important dresses ever designed: in a single look, it encapsulates the soul and culture of Southern Italy: colorful prints, straight necklines, and form-fitting lines that widen to emphasize a woman's hips, a way to highlight the swaying and sensual stride of the female step. The Sicilian dress quickly became the signature dress, the iconic piece of the maison.
Dolce&Gabbana's garments enter the fashion world's imagination, drawing inspiration from Italian neorealism and the image of a femme fatale in total black. The collections prefer luxurious fabrics such as satin, chiffon, lace, and animal prints.
Each collection has a well-defined identity, from bourgeois notes to the aristocratic soul of Baroque, passing through animal prints and always maintaining a strong reference to Sicily, Domenico Dolce's place of origin.
Dolce&Gabbana's stylistic signature also captivates the international jet set, and famous faces from the cinema and music become D&G ambassadors: not only actresses like Nicole Kidman, Demi Moore, and Monica Bellucci but also singers like Simon Le Bon, Bon Jovi, and Jennifer Lopez.
The Dolce&Gabbana woman
is a Real Woman, to quote the name of one of the duo's early collections: a strong and determined feminine soul unafraid to take risks.
Timeless forms and lines, finely crafted fabrics, complex in their simplicity, rich in history, values, and symbolism that transcend fashion: D&G creations are classic and timeless, surpassing momentary trends. Collections that make black lace and lingerie-style dresses a true must in Italian fashion. Craftsmanship is always present in the creative work of the two designers and in their collections: for Dolce&Gabbana, it is an added value, a precious resource that makes the brand unique.
