Dolce & Gabbana Sues Dolce & Banana

Dolce & Banana, a Cape Town jewelry shop that sells beaded necklaces to tourists, has been slapped with a trademark infringement lawsuit from none other than Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. South African craft enthusiast Mijou Beller has since changed the name of her store to "...And Banana." She says she doesn't have the 100,000 South African rands ($13,195) to pay back the legal fees D&G claims she owes them. She is, however, pleased to have been featured in VOGUE.

Dolce & Gabbana Too Edgy?

Chris Mohney · 01/10/07 11:00AM

A pair of Dolce & Gabbana ads that ran in the London Times and Daily Telegraph have caused a row (as they say over there) due to their literally knife-edgy content. The first ad shows a pair of D&G-clad boy-creatures on the brink of stabbing another of their number, apparently having already done in yet another who lies dead on the floor. The second ad is a Marie Antoinette-ish tableau that also involves a knife. (Full-size versions of both may be found after the jump.) These ads didn't cause trouble elsewhere, even in the U.S., but perhaps it was bad luck that the first ad ran opposite an article on knife-related crime. Beyond the stagey stabs, it's typical D&G melodrama all the way, "taking inspiration from the paintings of Delacroix and David." Not nearly as violent as those ads from Vogue Italia anyway. Can't we just get back to the blowjobs?
