Established in 1985, Dolce&Gabbana is today one of the leading international groups in the luxury goods sector. The founders, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, have always been the creative and stylistic source of all the brand’s activities, as well as the drivers behind the development strategies based on balanced growth on a global scale and focus on the core business.
The Group designs, produces and distributes high-end clothing, leather goods, footwear, accessories, fine jewelry and timepieces. Through licensee partners it also manages the production and distribution of the beauty and eyewear lines.
As far as the structure of the Group is concerned, Dolce&Gabbana has within it the fundamental assets for continuous development: ownership of the brands and the management and control of the three operating divisions, Production, Distribution and Licenses. The direct control of the entire value chain, from creation to sale, enables the Group to convey – in the most effective manner and through all the expressions of the brand – its strongly distinctive style and solid DNA, based on sartorial tradition and Mediterranean culture, with a special emphasis on Sicilian culture.
As of 31 March 2014, the brand is present in 40 countries worldwide with a network of 287 mono-brand stores.
