Reviews - What do customers think about 20 Years: Dolce & Gabbana?
Behind the concept curtain Aug 24, 2006
I'm reviewing this book not as a fan of Dolce Gabbana, which I am, but as a photographer who loves their ad campagians, especially those of the past decade. WOW. Unlike the movie business, not a lot of behind the scenes stories are written about the production of the biggest fashion ad campagians with the top photographers. I was surprised to find that Steve Misel shot most of their recent ones. More than that it is great to see the drawings for how they were developed and what the thought process was. PLUS the Photos, which looked amazing in teh magazine really shine when printed on high quality paper. A great book, but a bit pricey unless you find a killer deal on a used copy, which I did.
All I can say is 'Wow.' Jun 30, 2006
I did not think that anyone could put together such an amazing book. The book starts off with the spring/summer collection of 1986. It features runway photos and describes every season. The photos include advertisements, editorials and runway photos. The quality of the pictures are amazing! There is a page dedicated to every season where Domenico and Stefano are interviewed and they describe the theme of the season. There is one big flaw that really makes the reading of the seasons terrible. The author misspelled words and then just crossed them out and kept it in the text. There is also underlined text and even whole sentences that are circled. This makes reading about every season difficult because the sentences do not flow. Please get this book. The price is worth it and you'll love all the beautiful pictures.
