Item description for Dolce & Gabbana (Memoirs) by Franca Sozzani...
Since the opening of their studio in 1982, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have combined the cultural sensibilities of their native Sicily and Venice to lead a new generation of Italian design. From Susan Sarandon's dress at this year's Oscars to their best selling books, Dolce & Gabbana's strong, sensual style is the very incarnation of la dolce vita at the end of the century.

Celebrating Sensuality Nov 3, 2007
I leafed through this book today at Nordstroms Department Store and was so smitten with it that I couldn't wait to get home to my computer and order it from this site. First, let me say that the "cutsey" cover belies the smoldering sensuality that permeates the photos inside. Each photo is so beautiful that it transcends mere fashion photography. Even the little old Sicilian ladies project a sexiness born of wisdom. This tiny book prooves that fashion, more than anything, is about attitude.

the book I receive was in excelent conditions. It arrived sooner that I though, which helped me to complete a research project I was doing for school.
I'm crying from disappointment! Jun 2, 2006
D&G is one of the top five brands but this book made me cry from disappointment. The book is very small and does not have many pages. The book begins with a "Dolce & Gabbana Glossary." The glossary has words like, "Animal Print," "Black," "Tank Top," etc. I know what the color "black" is. Apparently the author assumes the reader is stupid and does not know what the color black is. The pictures are a big mound of doo doo. All the pictures (with the exception of two) are in black and white. (The other two pictures of a yellow color). Almost ALL of the great pictures can be seen in "10 years of Dolce & Gabbana." I recommend that book over this one. Also, the pictures in this book are not even great looking. There are no advertisements or pictures from the catwalk. Buy "10 years of D&G" instead and you'll enjoy it more.

For a glimpse into the glamorous world of high fashion and haute couture at its finest, Dolce & Gabanna's The Universe of Fashion is highly recommended eye candy.
