D&G, the casual and youthful line by design house Dolce & Gabbana, first appeared in 1994, almost 10 years since the brand took off. Dolce & Gabbana appeared on the fashion scene in October 1985 with a collection, and their first full fashion show came out a year later. The brand, then, held their first New York fashion show in 1990.
D&G was designed as Dolce & Gabbana’s casual and less formal collection. The clothing and accessories, produced by Ittierre in Isernia, have a youthful and contemporary look and are geared toward a young adult crowd – think older teens and twentysomethings with good fashion sense. The collection, now 16 years old, had its first store open in 1995 and, two years later, had its own fashion show independent from the Dolce & Gabbana line.
DG sunglasses, part of the eyewear collection, first appeared in 1998 and have been a highly sought-after item since then. DG sunglasses, now a celebrity staple, are produced and distributed by Marcolin and combine a vintage and refined sense of style. Vision in Style carries many pairs of DG sunglasses for men and women.
Simplicity but distinct style is the key to the line of DG sunglasses. All frames are made with the latest styles: aviator, oversized, wraparound, and shield. The frames themselves fuse classic sensibility with a modern touch. Many aviator frames, for example, use dark or gradient lenses, while the frames are a thicker colored plastic. Similarly, many oversized DG sunglasses for women eschew the rhinestones and tacky styles of many brands and, instead, go for a back-to-basics but still feminine appearance. 8057 model sunglasses, with transparent pink frames and grey-green lenses, are an example of this fusion.
No matter if you go for a pair of men’s, women’s, or unisex DG sunglasses, nearly all have the collection’s “D&G” logo displayed on the side.
