For Dolce&Gabbana’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection the Italian fashion brand partnered with Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) to celebrate the excellence of Italian research in the technological field and its infinite applications by using multifunctional humanoid robots as part of the show.


The show, which was broadcast live across the brand’s digital platforms highlighted Dolce&Gabbana’s commitment to the future and scientific developments that will help create advanced solutions to meet our daily needs.



“We are really happy that IIT has accepted this challenge: it is incredible to think how man’s cleverness and determination can give life to new forms of intelligence, which can learn from their own experience and be deployed in the medical, environmental and social fields. Fashion has always been the result of the confluence of worlds that can be very far from each other: if technology is truly serving the man, his needs and his passions, then a craftsman and a robot will be able to coexist”. Said Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.



The collection itself celebrates the future, but also looks to the past, with inspiration taken from the nineties; a decade of bold styles and colours. Dedicating this collection to the future generations; the “Tik-Tok-ers”, the millennials and the technology-savvy.



Looking to the archives, classic prints and symbols from throughout the brand’s nineties reign reappeared as motifs and prints. Kaleidoscope colours and bold clashing textures came together to create a psychedelic aesthetic.



The iconic D&G silhouettes could still be seen, even between the chaos, and while the future is very much the starting point for the collection, this new chapter for the Italian House perfect celebrates its legacy and the true essence of the brand.
