Eccentric and Mediterranean the (first) Dolce & Gabbana house

by admin

“We believe in chance and at the same time in destiny: the birth of the first collection of furniture and furnishing accessories confirms this paradox”. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana explain (also) in this way their debut in the house, in Venice, on Saturday 28 August, with an almost museum-like setting at the Scuola Grande della Misericordia.

An extra surprise for the 500 high fashion, tailoring and jewelery customers who arrived from around the world to attend the fashion shows of the brand’s most exclusive collections. In Venice there were also many journalists and furniture and design enthusiasts, invited specifically or in the city for the last days of the Architecture Biennale and perhaps leaving for Milan, where the SuperSalone opens today (see the attached 32-page Special to the newspaper).


“We had visited the Scuola della Misericordia assuming we would set up the haute couture show there, but it seemed to us that it was ideal for the home collection and in the end, instead of using one floor, we furnished two – say the two stylists and entrepreneurs – dedicating them to two of the four major themes of this debut: leopard and Sicilian cart. Mediterranean blue and zebra we unveiled them together at the haute couture show which was then held at the Arsenale ». The initial paradox, however, is not yet fully explained.

How was the home line of Dolce & Gabbana born, whose first show dates back to 1985? «A long gestation, it is true, because for many years we have dedicated ourselves to pret-à-porter and only since 2012 to high fashion – they reply -. This is the biggest project since then, but we have been thinking about it for a long time, also because we are both passionate about furniture and design, without ever being able to give it a concrete shape. It happened when the Luxury Living group looked for us for the furniture part: the meeting caused the spark to re-open, but the house, we repeat, is part of our destiny as stylists ».

For the two designers, this is what destiny means: a story built by living each step intensely and which naturally leads to choices and projects that are always new and ambitious, but coherent. «Leopard, cart, Mediterranean and zebra are not words, but aesthetic visions and real worlds – they add -. This is why it was important to find affinity with those who materially made furniture, accessories, home textiles, carpets, plates, glasses … It happened because in Italy we have the best companies in the furniture design and craftsmen, as in fashion, who no other country can boast “.
