The Great Designers: Dolce & Gabbana

 These two Italians are the fashion answer to Viagra: the full throbbing force of Italian style. They met for the first time in Sicily and this is what provided a reference for their aesthetic signatures ever since: the traditional Sicilian girl (opaque black stockings, black lace, peasant skirts, shawl fringing), the Latin sex temptress (corsetry, high heels, underwear as outwear), and the Sicilian gangster (pinstripe suits, slick tailoring, fedoras). Yes, this is what makes Dolce & Gabbana so different and exciting. Their ability to create something breathtakingly beautiful by combining these complete opposites - masculine/feminine, soft/hard, and innocence/corruption. 

That is where their continuous inspiration comes from - the contrasts, opposites that attract each other like magnets, the music and the cinema, especially the black and white movies. These two genius designers are inspired by anything and everything - by the everyday life, by the world and by the people around them, by the Mediterranean and Sicily. 

When designing they  have in mind many different things that led them to achieve a specific outfit. To these two artists the sketch is the end of an elaborate process because it is the result of many conversations, thoughts, notes and experiences they  have put together.

To both of them fashion is a way to express their creativity, to experiment, to reflect their personal feelings. Dolce & Gabbana believe that they have the most beautiful job in the world and they love it. It is who they are, their passion and their life. For them designing clothes is a continuous challenge and their ultimate goal when it comes to work is to create a signature style that will be remembered and will remain throughout the years.

Their muse is Madonna because of her strong personality. This said it doesn't come as a surprise that their philosophy in life is to always be themselves and to be consistent, not to betray their personality or loose their identity.

"  We are both creative, both in a different way. We complete each other."     ~ Dolce & Gabbana
