Dolce & Gabbana

The Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana presented their debut collection in 1985 at Milan Fashion Week. Since the beginning, their signature style is unmistakable: black lace, corsets, lingerie, floral and leopard prints, slip dresses, tailored shapes. Dolce & Gabbana sensual aesthetic is perfectly embodied by quintessential Italian beauties: Anna Magnani, Sophia Loren, Isabella Rossellini, Monica Bellucci. In 1987 photographer Ferdinando Scianna shot the iconic black and white campaign, with Dutch model Marpessa Hennink portrayed in neorealistic Sicilian locations: the Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian dream was born.
