Film Exclusive: Sicilia S/S13 by Dolce & Gabbana

An exclusive behind-the-scenes film of Dolce & Gabbana's S/S13 campaign, shot in Sicily...

Last October, Dolce & Gabbana delivered a taste of Sicily at the S/S13 show in Milan. It was a message from Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's hearts. Spectacular basket-weave corsets; dresses made from delicately painted raffia sacks; crocheted kitten heels; street-puppet earrings; souvenir scarves; striped separates and sunglasses.

The campaign, shot in Mazzarò Bay, Taormina, Sicily had the same vibrant summer holiday energy as the collection, featuring models Bianca Balti, Monica Bellucci and Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, alongside locals of all ages. Captured exclusively for, this short film gives a behind-the-scenes preview of the house's upcoming campaign, shot by Domenico Dolce. Swimming, dancing in the sea, sunbathing, lounging on boats – one can't help but want to be the Dolce & Gabbana woman.

Saluti da Taormina. Mare. Sole. Amore. (Greetings from Taormina. Sea. Sun. Love.) For more images and information on the Dolce & Gabbana S/S13 campaign, visit Swide, the brand's luxury online magazine.
