Dolce & Gabbana the Italian luxury was started by Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana in 1985. Dolce & Gabbana made the “DG” logo an iconic symbol, but they were never able to get the matching internet address DG.com. By 2005 their turnover was €597 million. Dolce&Gabbana specializes in luxury items influenced more by designers and is more formal and ‘timeless’, responding to long-term trends as well as seasonal changes. It also sells sunglasses and corrective eye wear, purses, and watches.D & G was a casual line that follows an urban inspiration and attempts to set trends rather than follow them. It is the younger, more flamboyant diffusion line of the brand. Unlike Dolce&Gabbana, D&G sells watches as well as clothing. In 2011, Dolce & Gabbana decided to abolish the D & G-line in order to put “more strength and energy” into their other collections.
D&G today has presence in all major shopping cities with big presence in the Middle East.
