About the designer

Designer duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, experts in the fashion trade, have been around for more than 25 years as luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana. Starting in a tiny atelier in Milan, they have grown to become a fashion empire. The fact that it's a privately-owned company has given the two carte blanche when it comes down to their creative outlets. Both Stefano's and Domenico's openness towards environmental and technological changes have caused a positive impact for the brand. They were amongst the first brands who invited both renowned editors and bloggers to be seated front row at their 2010 spring show.
Collections are based on three returning concepts: their roots - Sicily -, tailoring and tradition. Using this as a foundation for the brand's collections, Domenico and Stefano try to combine those concepts with 'the new'. This is the balance of Dolce & Gabbana.

Collection spring/summer 2018

Dreamy duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana turned to their tradition of stunning the crowds with their SS18 collection. This season, the iconic label’s show opened with shades of black, immediately lending the collection a flirtatious and undeniably seductive allure. Transparent and see-through fabrics were key to the all-black ensembles that ranged from elegant dresses to bespoke suits, complete with translucent trousers and matching socks. With a sudden burst of colour that left the fashion pack in awe, the house showed its Sicilian roots in bold and vivid silhouettes, adorned with both folk-inspired and graphic ‘Queen of Hearts’-inspired prints. Varying lengths were on show, from shorter-than-short to ankle-grazing and even floor-pooling, while outsized headwear topped off the looks. In complete contrast to the start of the show, the finale consisted of fun and feminine looks, with in-your-face prints alluding to a ‘the bigger the print, the better the drama’ sensibility. As one of the last looks, a multicoloured maxi dress featured contrasting blocks of bright shades, while the airy silhouette was cinched by a weaved corset waist – completing the season’s extravaganza. With no fewer than a hundred looks, ‘go big or go home’ seemed to grasp both the theme and the size of this years’ spring/summer collection.
