Dolce & Gabbana
Just five years after debuting their first womenswear collection, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana decided 1990 would be the year they break into menswear. At a time where Italian fashion was primarily associated with Giorgio Armani’s minimalist approach to menswear and Gianni Versace’s lavish style—with both utilizing sprezzatura signatures like broad shoulders and straight cut trousers, Dolce & Gabbana’s slim and fitted country-inspired garments are an example of the type of independent thought that would make the brand world famous. While the brand has left its mark on modern fashion, it has earned more headlines in the 2010s for its founders’ controversial views and actions—as opposed to its collections.
Though the brand has accomplished many things in over 20 years in menswear, its most beloved collection amongst menswear heads is Fall/Winter 2003, a collection inspired by the underground dance scene and an increasingly militarized environment.
