Dolce & Gabbana
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have Italy on their minds. Every Dolce & Gabbana children and Dolce&Gabbana baby collection is inspired by the Italian heritage: the Mediterranean, history, folklore, religion and the arts. Black lace or Majolica print can be found in the Dolce & Gabbana children's collection. They’re typically paired with Dolce&Gabbana sneakers and the mini version of the Sicily Bag! The master of baroque elegance creates one-of-a-kind clothing that beckons for a seasonal discovery in the "Mini-Me" Dolce & Gabbana selection.
The story of Dolce&Gabbana
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are Italian to the core. These masters of intense, baroque elegance 'alla siciliana', born in 1958 and 1962 respectively, met in a Venetian workshop and launched their own brand in 1985. Legendary Italian actress, tragic heroine, Italian widow, Madonna or Visconti muse, the Dolce&Gabbana woman is always vintage, sensuous and mystical, like the women who have inspired the designers.
The Dolce&Gabbana style
Dolce&Gabbana is all about a nostalgic pop style that Andy Warhol would not have disowned. The pair know better than anyone how to imprint Italian folklore on the contemporary wardrobe by blending traditional influences and quirky accessories, such as Dolce&Gabbana bags and sneakers, but also a whole array of high-tech gadgets. Dolce&Gabbana is also about unforgettable advertising campaigns. Every season the luxury fashion house films its greatest muses - like Monica Bellucci and Madonna - in the street, with their families, around a plate of pasta or roaring with laughter with passers-by against a picture postcard background. Now become a fashion statement, the #DGFamily is exactly that.
Every year, the Dolce&Gabbana ready-to-wear fashion show closes Milan Fashion Week in spectacular style. Eagerly awaited as the climax to a week of Italian couture with an ever greater wow factor, the Sicilian designers' show is a hymn to La Dolce Vita with signature details that have disrupted fashion history. The Dolce&Gabbana signature details? Red roses, the Mediterranean, history, folklore, religion and the arts, black lace, leopard print, corset dresses and the incredibly elegant gangster-chic suit.
Domenico Dolce is a tailoring specialist who works with his partner to increase the number of iconic prints. No Dolce&Gabbana collection would be complete without its floral dresses, polka dot dresses, fruit and vegetable prints, baseball stripes and 'Sicily is my love' prints, blends of Sicilian mosaics and burlesque scenes. The Dolce&Gabbana spring-summer collections will be characterised by 1950s finishes in raffia or wicker in homage to Sicily's seaside markets. Winter sees the arrival of a regal wardrobe as well as pieces inspired by Catholicism, such as the Dolce&Gabbana collection that's taking centre stage at the MET as part of the 'Heavenly Bodies' exhibition.
Dolce&Gabbana for children
Since 1994, the Dolce&Gabbana children's collection has been offering girls' clothes, boys' clothes and baby clothes, all greatly inspired by the DNA of the parent company, as well as drop-dead gorgeous mini-me pieces.
