Madonna isn’t just the face of Dolce & Gabbana these days, she’s also a co-designer. The pop superstar worked with the Italian company to product six pairs of sunglasses that will be released in May. The eyewear features an MDG logo and will be produced and distributed by Luxottica. The frames will retail for between $248 – $298 and will be available at Dolce & Gabbana stores, Sunglass Hut locations and select optical shops.
Madonna is the face of the MDG ad campaign shot in New York by Steven Klein.
The campaign features Madonna as the mysterious and sensual star of a noir film caught on camera in the company of an intriguing man played by super model Tyson Ballou.
To lend a cinematographic feel, the campaign was shot with a video camera and the snapshots appear as frames of a short film while the layout of the prints recalls that of an old-fashioned movie film. The voyeuristic images metaphorically evoke the essence of a star such as Madonna: admired, spied, adored, pursued and desired, but never fully revealed, shrouded as she is in dark glasses and mystery.
