Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2012 Preview Ad
Dolce&Gabbana treat us to a preview of their upcoming Spring/Summer 2012 ad campaign, photographed by Mariano Vivanco. The campaign takes its theme from Italian cinema, a continuous source of inspiration for designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, with real actors Giuseppe Fiorello, Francesco Scianna, Filippo Nigro, Thomas Trabacchi, Primo Reggiani and Chiara Francini.
Dolce & Gabbana explain, "The photos shot by Mariano Vivanco are intentionally candid and reminiscent of scenes from an Italian-style comedy, where actors portray life in a Southern Italian village: a baptism, Sunday with the family, a portrait with mother, at the bar with friends, afternoons at the beach, courting the village beauty, guy talk, a stolen kiss on the docks and a birthday party with relatives. The spontaneous images portray fragments of real life and highlight the values of Dolce&Gabbana: Italian spirit, tradition, family, love, passion, joie de vivre and the ability to capture the modernity of the past and to render it contemporary."
