DOLCE&GABBANA: A SACRED HEART AND A DEVOTION TO FASHION

The consecration of a one-of-a-kind passion and an unconditional love: a pure feeling represented by a symbol conceived in religious tradition and enshrined in the imaginary of every individual: a chiselled heart, symbolic of devotion.

This is the Cuore Sacro – the Sacred Heart  ̶  one of the dearest images to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. The heart embodies their personal devotion: one to their work, the decision to dedicate their lives to beauty and the pursuit of excellence in every single detail.  

This is why the Fall-Winter 2018-2019 eyewear collection is given expression through this icon, teetering between the religious and the profane. 

There are three models for the sunglasses: the iconic lightweight round version and two versions of the cat-eye model. The first is in a classic black acetate– with black and gold striping – featuring the DG monogram emblazoned inside the heart and positioned on the temple. The same sunglasses are also available with burgundy damask frames.

The second version of cat-eye sunglasses is finer and stands out for the perforated metal lace that encircles the entire lens. Then there is the lightweight round model, whose defining feature is its elegant toothed ornamentation.

The Cuore Sacro has also prescription collection. The optical model adopts both the elongated vintage shape and the embossed decorative elements on the temple. For every prescription glasses different versions are available: burgundy red or havana with a burgundy and glitter gold sophisticated damask interior pattern, black and black and gold striped.
