Actress Monica Bellucci is the equivalent of Gina Lollobrigida and Sophia Loren in our times: an ideal of beauty as fantastic as she is sublime. This is how Dolce & Gabbana found her to be an indispensable muse for their composition that fits somewhere between modernity and Italian tradition. The designers and this actress indeed have Italy in common, but it’s first and foremost a story of love and friendship lasting several decades that unites them. “I started with them and we remained attached after all these years. We do photos, it’s not work; it’s like having fun with my friends while creating beautiful images together. As Mediterraneans, we share the same ideal of beauty,” confides Monica Bellucci.
Just like the actress herself, the Belluccis are seductive but charismatic, deftly oscillating between elegant stilettos and kitten heels. It’s easy for Dolce & Gabbana to release their creative furor here – with opulent adornments directly inspired by the fastidious Italy of yesteryear mixed with subtler details, the Belluccis are a pair of shoes whose only limit is imagination. With lace embellishments, metallic details, or Swarovski crystals, the Belluccis are sensual, baroque, and ostentatious.
In less than a decade, the Belluccis, a perfect mix of pleasure and classicism, have appeared everywhere to finish off any look with distinguished embellishment. Available in a wide and complex line, often touched up with bold details, these shoes incarnate Dolce & Gabbana’s idea of femininity: a very sophisticated, lightly vamp, woman. These shoes are a passionate Italian expression of beauty, refinement, and seduction of course.
