"We strive to create a personal, special, and intimate experience for our customers," says Dolce. "Our level of quality and attention to detail has become synony- mous with the brand." And this attention to detail—from infnitely exqui- site embroideries to delicate lace accents—goes beyond the needle and thread. In 2013, the designers began serving as creative directors for their ad campaigns, with Domenico behind the lens. "Becoming inspired, creating a sketch, deciding a mood or feeling, and then seeing it all come together when we personally shoot our campaign, it felt like things had come full circle," he says of the experience. As for the next 30 years? The duo's aspirations are still rather simple, according to Dolce. "We just want to keep working, and to continue doing what we love and create—hopefully—beautiful things." Molto bene. 68 E. Oak St., 312-255-0630; MA Dolce & Gabbana Fringed Poncho from the Fall/Winter 2015–2016 collection ($2,945 to $3,675). Holiday-inspired looks from the Dolce & Gabbana Cruise 2016 Collection. Bundle up Dolce & Gabbana's versatile Fringed Poncho takes on Chicago's wind chill in style. If anyone can make our city's sub- zero temps and gale-force winds glamorous, it's Dolce and Gabbana. The designers' new Fringed Poncho—a seasonal showstopper in alpaca, wool, and cashmere, with a generous ribbed turtleneck and sleeves to fend off the elements— can turn even the coldest Chicago morning into an opportunity to make a playful, runway-ready fashion statement. Worn as a cozy late-fall transition piece or layered under a more substantial overcoat, the poncho pairs well with every- thing from a dress to skinny jeans. All ThAT GliTTers Dolce & Gabbana's Oak Street boutique is a treasure trove of haute holiday essentials. Whether your New Year's Eve plans involve braving the cold for a close-up look at the inaugural Chi-Town Rising bash or cel- ebrating at the stroke of midnight from the comfort of a swanky black-tie event, Dolce & Gabbana's latest collection of acces- sories is full of soirée-ready must-haves. For festive footwear, the Black Velvet Heels with Daisy Crystals ($1,395) feature an open-toe-sandal pump adorned with sparkly rhinestone details, while vintage brooch accents make the exquisite White Leather Daisy Clutch ($3,595) the perfect party-hopping companion. // must-haves // "What makes us most proud is the fact that We have managed to create a very recognizable style." —stefano gabbana winter gear style tastemaker 44
