BRAND: Dolce & Gabbana
DESIGNERS: Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana
SHOW: DG Digital Show Man 1 DNA

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana tell us about their inspiration as a brand over the years and for their recent DNA Digital Show project.


Stefano Gabbana: “DNA” is the first men’s collection that we presented through the DG Digital Show project that lives on the brand’s web and social media platforms and offers, without giving up the emotion of the catwalk, men’s and women’s collections immediately available for purchase in boutiques and/or on the e-commerce. Real fashion shows blend the uniqueness of the physical experience with the potential of the digital for a global and more immediate communication.

Domenico Dolce: In this collection, Sicily meets streetwear: our classic elegance, proportions, the chromatic contrast between black and white and traditional fabrics blends with tech materials and new urban style processes.

DD: The search for the particular, the attention to proportions, details—fabrics, accessories—and contrasts. This Collection defines the most iconic Dolce&Gabbana codes in ever-new forms, enhancing their artisanal heritage and innovative instinct.



SG: Undoubtedly all Tornatore’s masterpieces, he is a Maestro!

SG: For this collection, we have chosen a contemporary rhythm, which creates an engaging and dynamic atmosphere.

DD: We love music; it is the protagonist of our days. It is a great source of inspiration; we listen to different kinds and artists based on the moment or the collection we work on.

SG: New York City is the background to the video of the show, and this film reminds us that New York has endless souls and stories to tell. It is a kaleidoscope of reality… pure energy.

DD: We look at new generations with renewed curiosity and interest. Their vitality is contagious!


DD: It is always difficult for us to choose a particular accessory. However, without a doubt, sneakers are the main accessory of this collection. We used them to style all looks, those with a sporty accent, and even for the more formal looks.
