Nero: The Color of Dolce & Gabbana

Black, the most powerful and overwhelming non-color, is the symbol of Dolce & Gabbana and encapsulates opposite feelings that attract: sensuality and rigor, tragedy and love.

In this large-format black-and-white book, the great masters of Italian and international reportage are contrasted with the most important fashion photographers, who have interpreted Dolce & Gabbana Black from behind their lenses since the 1980s. These include Helmut Newton, Inez & Vinoodh, Giuseppe Leone, Enzo Brai, Salvo Alibrio, Sergio Larrain, Bruno Barbey, Ellen von Unwerth, Gian Paolo Barbieri, Fabrizio Ferri, and Juergen Teller.

In these photographic masterpieces, which range from advertising campaigns to the most iconic editorials, the stars of cinema, entertainment, and fashion—featuring Monica Bellucci and Isabella Rossellini among others—will alternate with suggestive portraits of ordinary people, some never before seen by the general public and published here for the first time, in a constant dialog that puts Dolce & Gabbana Black at the center.

About The Author

Domenico Dolce, born in Sicily, near Palermo, in 1958, started to work with his father in the family clothing business while studying fashion design. Stefano Gabbana, born in Milan in 1962, began to work in various fashion studios with a graphic design background. They met when Stefano Gabbana phoned the tailor’s workshop where Domenico Dolce was working; they became life companions and founded the Dolce & Gabbana company. Their debut dates back to October 1985, when the designers presented their first collection to great success. Since then, Dolce & Gabbana has experienced a constant, unstoppable ascendancy.
