Dolce & Gabbana welcomes the return of British male model Kit Butler, unveiling a captivating visual journey that defines the Men’s Fall/Winter 2023 campaign with a fusion of modern allure and timeless elegance. Butler, enveloped in an atmosphere of intimate sophistication, brings to life the brand’s evolving ethos, exuding confidence and contemporary style while honoring the timeless elegance the fashion world associates with Dolce & Gabbana.
Photographed by Steven Meisel and orchestrated under the creative eye of Fabien Baron, Kit’s magnetic presence illuminates the campaign. Amidst the intimate setting, akin to a secluded sanctuary, every element, from the glossy black chair to the meticulously selected textures, is designed to accentuate the emotive atmosphere. Butler, the brand’s cherished muse, gracefully intertwines with his surroundings, embodying the spirit of the collection.
The Men’s Fall/Winter 2023 collection sees Kit adorned in a series of meticulously crafted attire, from the tactile richness of a mesh-stitch sweater to the gleaming elegance of sequined pants. These pieces are more than clothing; they are an expressive extension of Butler’s persona, a harmonious blend of the tactile and visual that engages the senses.
Karl Templer’s styling, alongside Guido Palau and Pat McGrath, icons in hair and make-up artistry, and set designer Mary Howard, have contributed to the aesthetic richness of the campaign.
