Other Interesting Stuff

Dolce & Gabbana was publicly criticized by Britain's advertising watchdog Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) in January 2007, for an advertising campaign showing models brandishing knives.

The ads, showed two men holding a wounded women and two men threatening a man in a chair while another lay on the floor with a head wound.

The ad could be seen as condoning and glorifying knife-related violence," the ASA said of the Times advert. "It was irresponsible." Dolce & Gabbana said the adverts drew no complaints when they were published in China, Europe, Hong Kong, Japan and the United States.

Dolce & Gabbana open ‘Gold' restaurant in Milan

. Gold has long been an element in D&G's collections, being it their jewellery, ready-to-wear, accessories, and now restaurant décor.

.Gold has several levels including a downstairs bistro that opens at lunchtime and a more formal upstairs that serves dinner only.

“the golden theme isn't necessarily intended to represent money and luxury but more importantly gold is "an upbeat, sunny color" that signifies a "taste for beauty and for sensual pleasure."
