Dolce & Gabbana/Sozzani, Franc/Hardb/0500019215/S047-D2
Thames & Hudson
If one had to choose the predominant leitmotif of Dolce & Gabbana style, it would be the strong, sensual woman of Southern Italy.
Since the opening of their studio in 1982, the partnership of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana has come to symbolize the new generation of Italian design. It is Domenico Dolce's native Sicily - the women in their ubiquitous black shawls, the men in their stereotypical white tank tops and peasant caps - that provides the greatest influence on this duo's strong, sensual designs. Though they delight in borrowing from other periods and cultures - China, Carnaby Street, 1930s Mafioso, Hollywood glamour - Dolce & Gabbana inevitably return to their signature vision, one of corsets and petticoats, animal prints, patchwork and veils.
Constantly evolving and maturing, the quintessential Dolce & Gabbana woman remains sexy, shapely, confident, and above all, Mediterranean.
