The Spanish influence on the Sicilian traditions and colors is the inspiration for the images of the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015 ad campaign. Starring Spanish bullfighter José Maria Manzanares joined by models Bianca Balti, Vittoria Ceretti, Irina Sharipova, and Blanca Padilla, the traditional Italian and Spanish elements combine together to give the images a touch of Mediterranean sensuality.
The campaign features models posing in the collection’s black lace jackets, paired with ornate jeweled mini-bags and tiaras as well as well as a group of delightful, more mature women who beautifully showcase the brand’s festive accessories.
In September, Dolce & Gabbana set the tone by presenting a collection that draws upon Spanish fashion and culture. Specifically, the line is inspired by the Spanish influence on Sicilian traditions between the 16th and 18th centuries. Red and black lace abound, along with fringes, ruffles and polka dot prints. There are even ensembles evoking the customary attire of Spanish matadors.
