The new Dolce&Gabbana Fall/Winter ‘22-23 Women’s fashion show presents a new futuristic vision of its DNA.
The codes of the brand are reinterpreted and projected into the metaverse and, as in a video game, propose super feminine heroines.
The evolution is expressed through the choice and use of modern and technical materials, a reference to the digital realm: iridescent and mirrored surfaces, laminates, jersey and nylon.
Proportions, volumes and silhouettes are the focus of the new Collection.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana design a sculpted and geometric silhouette where everything is amplified: inverted triangle lines, classic and iconic jackets become oversized and reinvented with technical fabrics; padded shoulders, for a vaguely masculine but absolutely sexy style.
Between reality and imagination, corsetry is proposed on cropped T-shirts with trompe l’oeil effects.
The looks are completed by overcoats in logo-printed nylon or made of eco-fur in vivid colors, reminiscent of the virtual atmosphere typical of video games. All furs are eco-fur.
Dolce&Gabbana has discontinued the production of fur over time, but continues to work with furriers to prevent their expertise from being lost, always obtaining a result of the highest quality. This is the first step towards a path of sustainability.
The combination of colors such as black and red, metallic tones and strong tints, are chosen to reaffirm and strengthen the appearance and character of uniqueness.
Gianpiero D’Alessandro, a young cartoon-designer, has collaborated with the Brand in the creation of some of the graphics proposed on T-shirts and sweatshirts.
“For me, Dolce&Gabbana represents everything that’s beautiful about Italy. I still remember the first time I met Stefano and Domenico and I gave them some drawings I had made for them. During that meeting, they began to tell me about their story and how it all began.
I remember the passion in their eyes. It’s a pleasure for me to collaborate with the brand that has written and continues to write the story of the fashion world.
‘Proudly made in Italy.’ I chose to create these graphic elements for the collection because in my imagination, Dolce&Gabbana is a happy ‘place’ and I wanted these designs to incorporate certain emotional virtues for people to experience, such as a carefree childhood. The ‘Sweety Bunny’ character is accompanied by ‘Baby Carrot’ and together they represent the concept of family. Of love. Values that Dolce&Gabbana has always infused into in every single one of its projects.”

The designer is globally recognized as the creative mind behind established collaborations with brands and celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg, Nike, Netflix, and Levi’s.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana once again evolve their fashion, always contemporary, yet revisiting the styles of the 80s in a new mix & match. They plunge the new heroine into a video game where the brand’s DNA is re-interpreted for a modern and extremely dynamic image.
Actress Sharon Stone and Lady Kitty Spencer sat front row. The 90 looks which walked down the runway embodied the following characteristics: technical materials; eco-fur; new proportions and geometric lines; volume; futuristic; corsetry and an 80s aesthetic.
