Yes, I thought it was a pretty bold move on D & G’s part. Well, it’s obvious they’re doing this to create buzz and catch people’s attention. They accomplished that feat.
But what happened to the fashion? How does this ad get people to buy their clothing? Oh, that ad is so exciting. I’m going out to buy a Dolce & Gabbana outfit right now! Uh, yeah, right.
The fashion house has said that Spain is “behind the times” and will pull the ads from the country, but not anywhere else. They are also quoted as saying, "What has an artistic photo got to do with a real act?" Hmmmm...Ok, the picture is quite artistic, but gang rape? Not artistic.
