Founded in 1985, Dolce & Gabbana became a staple of taste, style and sophisticated elegance all over the world. Brand’s fame and fortune is founded on the Italian sweet couple’s unique vision on fashion that completely sets them apart from other older and long-established designers: authenticity and luxury imbued in the simplicity of their creations. This is why almost all Dolce & Gabbana creations, be them D&G clothes or Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses, sport a few common traits: they use basic colors and elegant, timeless lines that address the young and the bold.

Dolce and Gabbana are also known for being true pioneers of innovation: since Madonna’s D&G trademar bra she worn during her “The Girlie” tour, the brand assumed the mission of reinventing a handful of fashion concepts. They were the first to turn underwear into outerwear (a trend that is all the rage this year) and the first to put a man’s suit on a naked woman’s body. But their unique vision on originality doesn’t turn their creations into simple surrealists works of art people will never be able to wear at work.

On the contrary, the pure colors used by Dolce & Gabbana (black, white, deep reds) and the simple lines and cuts speak about their true values: women and men alike should benefit of clothes and accessories that enhance their beauty, compliment their personal styles and fit any personality. Beauty, seduction, sophistication, attitude, and vision can be considered the building bricks of all D&G creations and collections.
