Do Dolce & Gabbana convey their homosexuality too strongly in this Adv Campaign? And is this likely to alienate their hetrosexual audience and consumers?
Paris, Jean Bouin Arena, a symbolic place for Rugby. It’s in this “temple of Sport” that Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana created the new D&G Underwear Adv Campaign, with five Italian champions and photographer Randall Mesdon. Sergio Parisse, Denis Dallan, Ezio Galon, Andrea Masi e Gonzalo Canale are the athletes D&G chose to represent the contemporary man, and his lifestyle.
The impressive bodies sculpted through dedication, discipline and physically strenuous trainings, make them the perfect models for a new ideal of beauty that is healthy, clean and masculine. Randall Mesdon enhanced the statuesque lines of their body, the very same body which is that of real-life gladiators , scarred by strong encounters with worthy opponents. Because it’s the fight, but also the utter sportsmanship with which it is carried on, that makes Rugby one of the most fascinating and captivating disciplines out there.
