Some History On Dolce & Gabbana

 Summer has just arrived and we are proud to say that we are welcoming to our website a fantastic new brand: Dolce & Gabbana. Having added two equally well-known Italian brands earlier this year (Prada and Bvlgari), we feel that the addition of Dolce and Gabbana will compliment our list of Italian brands perfectly and be a great option for summer sunglasses. And it is also a great occasion for us to look back at the past of such a famous brand. Because, as Stefano Gabbana once said: “Italians know that what matters is style, not fashion. Italian style does not have social or age boundaries”.

 

Some History On Dolce & Gabbana

Created in in 1985 in Milan by Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, Dolce & Gabbana is a luxury Italian brand renowned worldwide. But it wasn’t always the case. The two designers met in in 1980 in Milan while working in the same fashion house. In 1985, they presented their first women’s collection in Milan, where they opened their first store a year later. From 1989 onwards, they began designing underwear, swimming costumes, men’s collections and even launched their first perfume. They also started to export their products to Japan and other countries, including the United States.

By the end of the 1990s, the company was already successful. Its revenues were around $500 million then and even reached $633 million in 2003. International recognition was helped a lot by the fact that Madonna wore a Dolce and Gabbana jacket to the premiere of Truth or Dare: In Bed with Madonna at the 1990 Cannes Film Festival. They then partnered with her in 1993 to design over 1500 costumes for “The Girlie” tour. And in 2010 she designed a collection of sunglasses titled MDG. The connection between the singer and the brand then seemed obvious. Madonna even stated:  “Their clothes are sexy with a sense of humor—like me”.
