Innovation, Made in Italy and the Japanese culture meet in the new Dolce&Gabbana x Jujutsu Kaisen Special Collection, creating new synergies between art and style.
The Jujutsu Kaisen universe, which became highly popular in Japanese culture, has inspired Dolce&Gabbana in the creation of a new – yet coherent with the brand’s DNA – Special Collection. Dolce&Gabbana’s vision meets the Japanese creative universe, from the Mix&Match to the street style aesthetics of many vibrant and contemporary districts of Tokyo, among which Shibuya and Harajuku. The seemingly distant creative universes of sartorial excellence and pop culture, intertwine uniquely in this Collection, introducing a new form of beauty. Symbols and stylistic elements, that can be traced back to the identities of the various characters, are translated into garments and accessories with a strong personality.
The Collection introduces a special no gender aesthetic: cotton and jersey T-shirts and sweatshirts are combined with nylon jackets. All personalized with screen printing, digital 3D prints and ideograms, symbols of the Japanese universe. All these elements create tactile games and a three-dimensional thickness. The art of anime and the innovative spirit of the younger generations talk with the Italian manufacturing tradition.
The Collection creates new links between fashion and art, culture and lifestyle. The Dolce&Gabbana x Jujutsu Kaisen Special Collection will be available in selected boutiques in Japan starting end of April.
Machine Gun Kelly moves closer to the release of his sixth studio album, mainstream sellout (Bad Boy/Interscope Records) by revealing its tracklist and official digital album artwork. Last night, the dynamo took over the trendy supper club Delilah in West Hollywood for a track reveal befitting of a music and fashion mogul: He donned 16 different custom Dolce & Gabbana shirts that each bore the name of a song on the album, which will be released on March 25. Check out the images from last night’s reveal HERE.
Today, fans received a bonus with the album’s featured acts revealed exclusively through the tracklist published on Spotify. The star-studded group includes Gunna, Young Thug, Bring Me the Horizon, blackbear and iann dior. Pre-order the new album HERE.
The new announcements add excitement to an album cycle already off to a blistering start thanks to MGK’s current hit collaborations with WILLOW and Lil Wayne. “emo girl,” with genre-bending dynamic force WILLOW has already soared above 40 million streams and raced inside the top 25 of Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart. “ay!,” featuring rap legend Lil Wayne, passed 11 million streams in its first week alone thanks to its visually captivating music video, in which MGK and his crew cycle through a parade of costumes that demonstrate his natural flair and rockstar lifestyle. Watch it HERE. Plus, the unique artwork for mainstream sellout’s digital configurations highlights the precision that MGK gives to curating each body of work.
mainstream sellout’s impending drop date caps a whirlwind month for the cross-genre hitmaker. Earlier in March, he honored fans with the release of his lockdown sessions EP, which took three fan-favorite viral tracks and distributed them officially across all streaming services for the first time. For the drop, MGK also shot a music video for the standout tune “roll the windows up,” (previously released as “smoke and drive”), a no-frills clip with he and his drummer, Rook, smoke in the car and capture the project’s homegrown vibe. Watch the full clip HERE.
In addition to his onslaught of new hit music, MGK has recently dominated the live space by performing on two of sports’ biggest stages: a headlining spot at the 2022 NHL All-Star Game in Las Vegas, and, in the lead-up to Super Bowl LVI, he and Halsey united for a blockbuster set for a Bud Light-sponsored show at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
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.

Dolce&Gabbana has chosen to discontinue the use of animal fur in all its Collections starting in 2022. With a view to preserving the work and professionalism of the master furriers, guardians of specific knowledge and skills with an indispensable added value, Dolce&Gabbana will continue to collaborate with these artisans in the creation of eco-fur garments and accessories, a sustainable faux fur alternative that uses recycled and recyclable materials. The new policy is supported by the Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International, in accordance with the guidelines of the Fur Free Alliance. “Dolce&Gabbana is working towards a more sustainable future that can’t contemplate the use of animal fur. The entire fashion system has a significant social responsibility role that must be promoted and encouraged: we will integrate innovative materials into our Collections and develop environmentally friendly production processes, while at the same time preserve artisans’ jobs and know-how otherwise in danger of fading,” says Fedele Usai, Group Communication & Marketing Officer at Dolce&Gabbana
“We applaud Dolce&Gabbana’s decision to stop using animal fur. Ending the use of fur creates a higher standard for what is acceptable in fashion, and we’re so excited to have Dolce&Gabbana, and so many others, embrace a better, more innovative path forward,” says PJ Smith, Fashion Policy Director at Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International.

While Bianca Balti and David Gandy remain the iconic faces of Light Blue and Light Blue Pour Homme, a new couple embodies the 2019 Summer limited edition to tell the story of the new fragrances: Light Blue Sun
Light Blue Sun is an invitation to Capri – let the new fragrance take you on a trip to relive your first summer romance.
LIGHT BLUE SUN – POUR FEMME
Dolce&Gabbana Beauty captures the essence of young, sun-kissed passion with new limited edition fragrances, Light Blue Sun, exploring a new olfactory territory: warm, sensual, sunny. Light Blue Sun is inspired by the exhilarating magic of summer love on the enchanting island of Capri, warmed by the dazzling Mediterranean sun rays. This summer, Light Blue’s fruity floral signature takes on a new sunny, sensual quality, as though warmed by the languorous heat of the Capri sun. Light Blue’s mouth-watering top notes of tangy Italian lemon and juicy Granny Smith apple are quenched with a liberal splash of cool, refreshing coconut water, and sharpened by the crisp sea sprays of the ozonic accord. The original heart of sensual jasmine and feminine white rose is now infused with exotic frangipani, creating a heady blend of sun-soaked floral nectar. In the base, aromatic cedarwood is warmed with ambrosial amber and the sweet intensity of Bourbon vanilla. Finally, a hypnotic trail of seductive white musks lingers on the skin, evoking the addictive desire of summer love.
LIGHT BLUE SUN – POUR HOMME
The iconic woody, spicy scent of Light Blue Pour Homme is reinvented with a splash of freshness and suffused with the warmth of the Italian sun. A chilled cocktail of Italian bergamot and juicy frozen grapefruit is invigorated with the vibrant, spicy tang of ginger and the fresh aquatic wave of the ozonic accord. As the fragrance evolves to an intensely Mediterranean and masculine heart, the warmth of cedarwood and cypress conjure the power of the sun at its midday peak, setting aromatic rosemary against a refreshing cooler of coconut water. Woody oakmoss and sensual white musks dominate the drydown, as earthy vetiver and carnal vanilla recreate the irresistible allure of salty, sun-kissed skin.
The warm sun of Capri lends its golden amber hue to the fragrances, while the sky- blue boxes are embellished with a traditional illustration of the beaming sun, in the style of the Mediterranean majolica of Capri.
THE NEW DIGITAL CAMPAIGN
The launch of Light Blue Sun marks the sequel to the Light Blue story with the summer crush of two young blondes, who meet on the enchanting island of Capri.
CHAPTER 1: SUNCRUSH
While she enjoys a gelato, and he works on the harbourside, the young couple catch each other’s eye.
CHAPTER 2: SUNSATION
As she sunbathes on the beach, he approaches to whisper an invitation in her ear. They spot a boat moored near the Faraglioni and hatch a plan.
CHAPTER 3: SUNSCAPE
Winding along the clifftops on his scooter, her arms wrapped tight around his waist, they arrive at a secluded cove, the sea sparkling in the midday sun. He dives into the water towards the boat anchored just off shore….
CHAPTER 4: SUNKISS
She basks on the sun-soaked deck, while he pulls anchor. Finally, they can resist each other no longer, and he draws her towards him in a passionate kiss….
Lunching in the sun with her friends, she spots him working on the dock, and her imagination starts to race. Suddenly she is basking in the sun, as he whispers in her ear, then stripping down to her bikini as they dive into the water. She imagines them frolicking on the deck of a boat by the Faraglioni cliffs, and imagines him drawing her towards him in a passionate embrace. As she finally emerges from her reverie, she holds his gaze with a flirtatious smile.
