As I have documented on this site before, I am in love with almost everything Dolce & Gabbana does (except alleged tax evasion, I'm less into that...but I digress). They just have a knack for creating fantasy worlds that I want to live in.
With its fairy tale themes and allusions to knights and armor, I was immediately drawn to the fall 2014 collection -- I studied medieval history in college, so I was all about those chainmail pieces and bejeweled flats.
The accompanying ad campaign takes that theme to the next level. In standard Dolce & Gabbana form, the images, shot by Domenico Dolce, feature clusters of people in various acted-out scenarios. German supermodel Claudia Schiffer joins the likes of Bianca Balti, Kate Bogucharskaia, and Nastya Sten in a lush fairy tale-like forest, where Sicilian men serve up fruit and some serious admiration.
It is, hands down, my favorite ad campaign in a long time.
