Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring/Summer 2015 campaign is definitely the best ads campaign of this year. Sicilian heritage of the brand is combined with Spain’s matador history and full of influences from both cultures. The art director of the campaign was Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, was the photographer. Their collection was captured on the streets, where Spanish bullfighter José Maria Manzanares was accompanied by beautiful models, who danced flamenco and also typical, charming Spanish grandmothers.
The pulsating pallet of red, pink, white, black, gold gives us sensual touch of Mediterranean tradition. We can spot black laces, red flowers, corsets, matador’s jackets, catholic elements, flamenco polka dots, romantic full skirts, high-waisted shorts and many others.
Sacred Hearts taken from the catholic religion are one of the main decoration element in this collection. They are turned into the medals, rich embroidery and jewellery.
The designers said that this collection is both, for mother and daughter. According to them, more and more women of different age go shopping together. Daughter might like bloomer shorts, while mother might prefer black pantsuit with a heart-embroidered cummerbund. Some of the designs, like white shirts with lace and pin-tucking, pumps or ankle boots could be perfect for all generations of fashion lovers.
All models wear their hair in low buns, typical Spanish style with deep red flowers on sides. To complete the look they have soft red, plump lips, which is characteristic to the both, Spanish and Sicilian tradition.
As the designers said, they didn’t look for the inspiration during a nice holiday in Spain, but instead they point out the tradition behind it: “The Spanish occupied Sicily for 300 years! There are so many shared things in our cultures—the music, the food, the decorated horse carts!”
Désirée loves this campaing and we hope that so do you! Olé!
