Dolce & Gabbana: Dress a woman with personality and irresistibly elegant
Domenico Dolce y Stefano Gabbana, the designers
The company was founded in the year 1985 by two designers, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Domenico and Stefano are known for their unique style and look. They made the stars look like stars for years. Their collection is reflective of classic Italian tradition inspired by the 60s.
The success story dates back to 22 years when two guys started with $1500 in their pockets. Since then, the brand has reached heights in women’s wear collection of clothing and accessories. Both the designers used to work as assistants in an atelier in Milan. Seeing a common passion, they both made their name together in the year 1985.
The Dolce & Gabbana style
Dolce and Gabbana are considered the inventors of a Mediterranean style that draws its inspiration from the Sicily of Luchino Visconti’s 1963 film The Leopard and the women of Italian realism, sensual and austere like Anna Magnani, to whom they dedicated a collection whose key element was the 1940s slip. At the beginning of their career, the designers also turned to Sophia Loren, Claudia Cardinale, and Stefania Sandrelli for inspiration.
Dolce & Gabbana’s Mediterranean style is not a rigid framework but the template of an imaginary world through which they draw inspiration. The collection changes for every season, ranging from the baroque to the plastic, from aristocratic to working class, brazen to bourgeois, from animal prints to a cardinal’s cloak. In 1994, for example, after producing corsets, girdles, T-shirts, and styles emphasizing breasts and revealing cleavage, Dolce & Gabbana introduced a "Sapphic chic" masculine style for women characterized by short hair slicked down with brilliantine, which was exemplified by one of their earliest fans, Isabella Rossellini. In 2003 for their Milan men’s show, they took their inspiration from contemporary soccer stars. The darlings of the Italian and international press, according to Suzy Menkes, a journalist for the International Herald Tribune, the two designers have the ability of being able to mix periods and countries, masculine and feminine looks, fabrics and styles.
The Dolce women
She is unbiased and brazen, but fearful of God and devoted to church and family, an attitude typical of southern Italian Catholicism. A woman who simultaneously reveals and conceals brassieres and corsets, lace, lingerie, and veils, and who is disturbing in her impetuous sensuality-a provocative woman proud of her body. The designers’ models are soft, round, and full-figured.
They were not looking for a retro look; however, Dolce & Gabbana turned to the past for innovation. The designers remarked, "We want to use the past to project it into the future" And making it modern involved the creative use of fabrics and colors, and the ability to blend various sources of inspiration, primarily those whose origins could be traced to the heterogeneous world of the Mediterranean.
