shot by steven klein, dolce & gabbana have created a classically italian campaign to present their heritage inspired collection. following last season’s model, madonna, im confident that stefano & domenico have created a formula for success when it comes to campaign images. more is more when considering model bookings for the label. here the cast is shown in black & white in a few of the key pieces to both menswear & womenswear collections. while the womenswear collection was described as much more sensual & romantic, we see izabel & isabeli of women model management with our beloved alessandra ambrosio of elite, sweating it up while looking ever-so-chic. as for the men; noah mills is represented by wilhelmina models while model icon, tony ward appears through the representation of DNA model management with sam webb of select models london. while the collections for both men & women were a failed expectation of my own, i’ve come to expect greater forms of glamour from the label & as so greatly demonstrated here, this season was even more scaled back then the fall line. that said, the direction & concepts of the design are translated beautifully through image. i love the reflection that was created to give the images more of a seaside feel. a great cast of male & female talent; i love the cinematic quality of the campaign.
