A true lifestyle brand captures the values, aesthetics, and culture of its audience. They inspire and guide people to live a certain way of life. For Dolce and Gabbana that way of life is Dolce Vita, a celebration of Italian craftsmanship, culture, and luxury, with an eye towards self-expression and innovation. Dolce and Gabbana have expanded beyond the runway into beauty and accessories as is true of most luxury brands. What has made them more unique are their forays into food and beverage, collaborations with notable Italian makers, and now an exciting new home line, Casa.
Fragrance and cosmetics are a natural extension of any luxury brand. Dolce and Gabbana are no exception. Their signature scents and makeup lines all feature beautifully branded packaging and design that beg to be left out on display.
The newest and most exciting offering from Dolce and Gabbana is its new home collection, Casa. This step solidifies Dolce and Gabbana as a true lifestyle brand, where the values of innovation, tradition, luxury, and heritage are expertly combined. The collection offers four motifs inspired by Italian culture and craftsmanship, to allow Dolce and Gabbana lovers to create a space that is truly representative of their personal tastes.
Carretto features homewares inspired by the designer’s flagship motif. The vibrant hand touched patterns are representative of the beauty and traditions of Italy, always at the heart of the Dolce and Gabbana aesthetic. Beautiful hand-blown Murano glassware created in partnership with Carovier & Toso is a highlight of the collection and celebrates the traditional craftsmanship of Italy.
Blu Mediterraneo imbues the calming palette of blue and white with a traditional tile patterning found in southern Italy. The tableware is hand-glazed as a tribute to the craftsmanship and brand ethos of fatto a mano (handcrafted).
Zebra and Leopardo reflect the fun and irreverent personality Dolce and Gabbana have always infused into their aesthetic. These graphic patterns inject a bit of boldness and irony into the collection. These collections exclusively feature a cashmere jacquard throw, a nod to the quality and luxury Dolce and Gabbana are known for.
D&G Food and Beverage
Wrapping traditional Italian food in Dolce and Gabbana’s iconic Sicilian hand pantied motifs, this collaboration with confectionary Fiasconaro is a feast for the eyes and appetite. The collectible tins and trays offer delectable panettone and serve as a true representation of Dolce and Gabbana’s love of tradition and craftsmanship.
Dolce and Gabbana also partnered with Italian winemaker Donnafugata to release a trio of wines with stunningly designed labels and boxes. These embody a perfect pairing of craftsmanship and a love of Sicily. The collection features Rosa, Isolano, and Tancredi.
If you’re lucky enough to sample the limited edition Dolce Vita chocolates created in partnership with chocolatier Baci, you’ll experience the quality and excitement inherent to the Dolce and Gabbana brand. These feature messages from the luxury designer in each wrapper, and the chocolates boast a decadent combination of lemon cocoa nibs, white chocolate shell, and crunchy hazelnut surrounding a gianduia center.
Central to the Dolce and Gabbana lifestyle is creative expression and a celebration of identity. DGyourself is an exciting experience created to allow the personalization of iconic sneakers and accessories from the brand. There is a dedicated creator platform on their website that allows you to add custom text, patches, and embellishments to make a pair uniquely yours. You’ll even find limited-edition and exclusive releases available for customization.
It’s clear that Dolce and Gabbana are creating a beautiful lifestyle brand that embodies rich tradition and creative expression, and will continue to innovate in exciting new ways.
