Dolce & Gabbana

Real beating heart of Italian style, Dolce & Gabbana are to the 2000s what the Versace 90s Duo sulfur and dynamic creators, they are unquestionably imposed in fashion but in pop culture through their raucous energy and strolling player…

This success story is the result of an alchemy between two strong creativity that were found, and complétèrent. Stefano Gabbana was born November 14, 1962 in Milan, he is the son of a printing worker, and he will study fashion in Venice; Domenico Dolce, meanwhile, was born September 13, 1958 at Plizzi Generosa, Sicily and raised in this so dear to the two designers. His father was a tailor in Palermo, and teaches him to make a jacket when he was only 7 years.

This is also in Sicily, Stefano’s favorite holiday destination, the two men meet. Soon they will leave more, and in 1980, they work in the same Venetian workshop. But it was not until 1985 that their union gives birth to the brand we know.

It imagines for women Haute Couture clothes that want sensual and contrarians. The first 1986 collection was an immediate success, especially with the jet set, and this is how stars such as Madonna, Monica Belluci and Kylie Minogue are gradually brand emblem.

With this early recognition, acolytes quickly launch a line for men who encounter the same success as the duo won in 1991 the Woolmark prize for the most innovative Men’s collection of the year. They decided to open their first women’s boutique in Milan in 1990, and gradually invest the US and Asian market with the opening in 1997 of two boutiques in New York, and outlets internationally more and more.

The Dolce & Gabbana style won the support of all, and the two designers are awarded numerous awards, handed over by magazines such as FHM, GQ or Telva. Yet their bias creation is clearly against the grain of current trends, minimalist and conceptual.

The couple claims a power and an unfailing optimism, drawing the locker room of a female object of desire, uninhibited and sensual, “who likes and knows she pleases.” This stylist speech hit home with a luxury clientele, famous and glamorous, and Dolce and Gabbana is fast becoming the “Elegant and casual chic.”

This close relationship with show business will be used for highly efficient communication tool mark. This is how the world could admire on stage 1500 costumes designed by the duo during the tour “Girlie Show” Madonna, followed by performances by Kylie Minogue and Whitney Houston.

Aware of the marketing potential of such collaborations with the stars, they do not hesitate to ask them to turn to their advertising campaigns. It has been that way admire Scarlett Johansson as the face of the fragrance “the One”, Eva Herzigova for the fall 2009 campaign, and Madonna herself was photographed during the next spring-summer 2010 campaign.

As is often the case, the two men quickly decided to go further and to diversify. They thus develop a fragrance collection in 1992 and launched the line D & G clothing line dedicated to a younger clientele. Then ensue a first D & G Music CD in 1996, an eyewear line in 1998, D & G Time (watches) in 2000, and a collection of children’s fashion in 2001.

But the duo wants to go further: this is how they look in 2006 to restore, with the inauguration of GOLD in Milan, versatile venue that houses a café, a cocktail bar, a bistro and a restaurant. Similarly, they embark on a collaboration with Citroën Italy for the design of C3 and C4 limited edition with Swarovsky logos, leather interiors and chrome bumpers.

Despite the multitude of their activities, the two men want to have a verticalisation policy: the Dolce & Gabbana group directly control the whole chain, from creation to sale. And we must admit that they manage their business in a master hand…

Separated in 2004, the couple Domenico and Stefano remains the artistic duo Dolce and Gabbana, and continues to provide in the fashion world a cult of youth certainly a little flashy, but full of invigorating energy that has many times make us forget economic crisis and gloom to dive happily in a world where everything is luxury, calm and voluptuousness…
