Are we team Boycott Dolce Gabbana?

Okay, Dolce & Gabbana what’s really up? Often unapologetic, it’s no surprise Dolce & Gabbana finds itself at the center of controversy once again.

“Dolce and Gabbana boycotts itself”, tweeted last Thursday. Last week D&G did a line of $245 T-shirts for those who have called for a boycott against the luxury brand. As well as releasing a video of a fake protest filled with young models wearing the shirts. The founders, designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, both made appearances in the video.


“I don’t care!! Really,” Gabbana replied to one Instagram user.

Not all publicity is good publicity. Critics are boycotting Dolce & Gabbana over its designers’ controversial statements is nothing new. Whether it’s the support of Trump, disregard of IVF, opposed gay adoptions, and accusations of beauty with thinness.

Dolce & Gabbana has embraced any connection from the Trump administration. The Italian fashion house has heard all the criticism over its support of the first lady, Melania Trump. Melania Trump has always been a fan of the brand, wearing the label on multiple high- profile occasions. Since the election, calls to boycott retailers that carried the Trump merchandise is a way to protest President Trump. A campaign better known as #GrabYourWallet. While some fashion designers have distanced themselves regarding their political stance, the love between Dolce & Gabbana and Trump have been mutual.


Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2017 campaign acts as a reconnect with their lost following. More like, trying to get a seat at the round table.


Across the Italian city, the collection featured cool teens and well-known celebrity prodigies. Dolce and Gabbana are not afraid to embrace the younger generation. Assigning the same fresh faces to star in their latest fashion campaign, #DGMillennials.

The cast included Presley Gerber, Rafferty Law, Gabriel- Kane Day-Lewis, Dylan Jagger, Brandon Thomas, social media star Cameron Dallas, and street style star Luka Sabbat. Outside the boy’s club, are Zendaya and the D&G French models Sonia Ben Ammar and Thylane Blondeau.
