Dolce & Gabbana will present its spring 2021 menswear collection as part of Milan Fashion Week: Men’s next month.
Though the Italian fashion industry is still reeling from the coronavirus crisis, officials at the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana recently announced that they will be presenting the first digital fashion week from 14-17 July 2020.
Now, Dolce & Gabbana co-founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have confirmed they will be kicking off the new format with a show on 15 July.
“We have always been in love with Italy, with all its beauties and excellences, and we have invested our energy to support it and make it renowned to the world. Fashion needs, now more than ever, strong positivity and cohesion. At a particular moment like this, we thought it was important and necessary to join forces. We supported the Camera della Moda project Italia We Are With You and we HAVE decided to be part of its Digital Fashion Week,” they said in a statement. “These collaborations brought us closer to Camera della Moda and renewing our collaboration has been a natural result. We hope we will be able to look to the future together, giving Italian fashion the respect and attention it deserves, to support the production chain and because fashion itself is one of the maximum expressions of Italian creativity.”
Exactly how Dolce and Gabbana are planning to stage their collection amidst the social distancing restrictions remains unclear, but editors at Vogue have reported that they will be holding it outdoors within the grounds of the Humanitas University.
Previously, Camera della Moda executives announced that the digital fashion week would also include webinars, livestreams of interviews with important industry figures, and live performances.
