Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015


Hello! We’re insanely close to New Year’s Eve and I’m blogging once again. This time is about one of my favorite subjects in the world… Dolce & Gabbana. I absolutely know this sounds incredibly cliché of me, but it is unavoidable to ignore this if you love, breath and live for fashion.

This time, it is about the Spring 2015 campaign. What is it different from all the others? How can we say that it is ‘wow’ if it is (maybe) one more ad that will appear on different magazines around the world? Well, this time, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce played it incredibly smart and chose more than one incredibly and iconic character. The main role here is taken by laughter and the value of life.

Take a look and see how age, color, nationality and style blend all together in one piece or composition. By just watching it, you’ll identify that is D&G, but once again it is an image that makes you smile. The Spanish folclor is all taken, keeping up with the Sicilian details all over the place. The Byzantine gold details come up as well, showing us or even screaming at us like ‘Hey! Remember we’re Dolce & Gabbana (and we’re here TO STAY)!’

I absolutely love it. I think their legacy is so original, so pure and so characteristic. That’s what inspires people. To take all those elements and create a masterpiece. Of course some might disagree because that’s how planet Earth is driven nowadays, but this time, I honestly don’t care. I think they’ve achieved a wonderful project and let’s hope they keep it up (no matter what).



“Laugh! Kiss! Have Fun!”… It’s a D&G ad!

-“Finally! A twist on a high-fashion ad!”

This is the reaction that I think Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce were aiming for when coming up with this fall/winter ad campaign’ ideas. If this was the reaction they were aiming for, they definitely achieved it and successfully.

What’s even more beautiful about the ads is that they still keep that D&G touch that never goes out of fashion. The ad acts as a beautiful classical Italian movie. Each image tells a story, but leaves a perfect space for personal interpretation. If you look closely and take a moment to check out the details of each scene, each person has a role, each person is using a fascinating facial and corporate expression.

The expression on their faces is what keeps me fascinated. The use of the expression, I think, was something so risky, but so beautifully achieved, that if you think again, few designers, creative directors or fashion houses have taken that risk before, maybe because of the fear of loosing the high-fashion aesthetic. This type of ad is what makes the fashion house unique.

Just a few extra details… They selected their eternal muse as one of the main characters on each scene, Monica Bellucci. And, they’re bringing to the light three more girls for a perfect contrast plus a little touch of drama, Bianca Balti, Kate King and Andreea Diaconu.
