The quirkiest fashion campaigns of spring/summer 2016
Emblazoned with the catchy hashtag of “Italia
is Love,” Dolce & Gabbana’s new advertising pictures burst with colors and vivid imagery. And each image—shot by Domenico Dolce himself—is
packed with stunning models of various racial backgrounds. This is despite the oriental-inspired collection, not to mention a reference to Chinese tourists poring over a Sicilian guidebook or toting carton shopping bags. More than about Italy, the
campaign intrinsically speaks of self-love, the core principle of capitalism today. But with such good-looking models on display including Alessio Pozzi, Aurelien Muller and Stefano Seminara, this
interpretation can easily be missed.
