Celebrated Italian actress Monica Bellucci has starred in the new Dolce & Gabbana‘s campaign to promote the brands spring/summer 2012 collection. The fashion giant has created a wide range of advertising efforts in its district sensual and flamboyant style, with a nod to the Italian background of the fashion house, and the new marketing effort is no different.

Dolce&Gabbana has unveiled an haute couture range of exclusive heavily embroidered bodices that may be turned dresses, all in crystals, priced at eighty thousands of euros on average at its fall fashion show. The new “63 exquisitely crafted bustiers encrusted with jewels and sequins and everything glittery” were presented at the closing of the SS12 (watch the video below). These bodysuits are available both as they are and as dresses, which are much easier to wear than bustiers (the key elements of design and decoration are preserved)—only a few of them can be purchased at the moment (which makes this range a bit prêt-à-porter), the rest can be ordered by the loyal clientele.

The next year will be the last one for D&G, the line by the fashion giant Dolce & Gabbana as Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana announced they are going to fold the D&G line to focus on the top brand offer. “For the upcoming seasons, D&G will become part of Dolce & Gabbana, giving even more strength and energy to our collections. To us, it’s like going back to when we began our adventure: full of ideas,” they commented in an emailed statement as Reuters reported back in September. Now, the brand is calling its fans to help create the farewell video to the youthful line, which was first launched almost 20 years ago and now is coming to an end.

Dolce&Gabbana has launched its Masculine vs Feminine campaign, revolving around the eternal theme, the clash between (or a combination of) feminine and masculine power, and promoting the Fall/Winter 2012 collections. The new series of photos shot by acclaimed photographer Steven Klein reveals the spirit of Italia, where ladies are as brave as their husbands and men sometimes can be as sensitive and love romance as women. The brand’s prints are always very juicy and hot, and sometimes are quite controversial (like it was with the homoerotic series of photos last year)—this time, the photos showcase all the emotions towards the opposite sex—both violent and soft, gentle,—which were held inside.
