Dolce & Gabbana designs announce a presence that demands attention; subtle and understated need not apply. Barely-there orange leopard-print blouses, crocodile-skin stilettos, and iridescent bluish-green skirts made of peacock feathers typify D&G daywear. Many who crave an antidote to Madison Avenue's safe conservatism seek out Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's predictably shocking creations. Find a large selection handbags, purses and wallets in loud prints, bright colors, and exotic animal skins (most adorned with giant gold buckles and metal accents) as well as D&G's signature scent.
The Italian designers’ more upscale line offers equally sleek and skinny men’s garb, whether they’re tailored suits or traditional three-button tuxes (from $1,450).
