CITY GUIDE / MILAN / INSIDER GUIDES / DOMENICO DOLCE & STEFANO GABBANA - MILAN

“We’re not about minimalism, we’re massimalismo,” is the famous bon mot of Stefano Gabbana, one half of Italian fashion powerhouse Dolce & Gabbana. Sharp tailoring, leopard print, lingerie and a love of the Baroque are the house signatures he refers to. It’s a look that since he partnered with Domenico Dolce in 1985 has come to define the modern bella figura and which in 2013 officially made them billionaires.
Long inspired by their beloved Sicily – see their use of acres of black lace and romantic emboirdery – the island is where “the boys” as they are affectionately known in the fashion industry chose to launch their first haute couture collection in the summer of the 2012. But it is Milan where their HQ remains and where they opened Gold, the Dolce & Gabbana restaurant, as well as the Spiga 2 concept store that champions young up-and-coming designers. Their Milanese flagship store even includes a Sicilian barbershop. Famously friendly, here Domenico and Stefano open their little black books to Milan.
