Dolce&Gabbana presents Dolce&Gabbana Jewellery video by Giampaolo Sgura starring Bianca Balti and Simone Nobili
A white lace curtain moves gently at the soft touch of the wind coming from an open window letting the noisy street invade the interior of a Sicilian home. In front of an old mirror lit by two candles a beautiful woman is getting ready for her lover. It's a long ritual for which she carefully adjusts all the details, slowly putting on earrings and a black lace dress with high heels. You can tell by the light it's a hot day. A starkly set table is the stage of a steamy affair between the woman and a young man, a student, perhaps. The shyness of his almost clumsy gestures, the rush with which he undresses her, reveal a desire which needs to be quickly satisfied, as fast as the candles in the room are burning. Her hidden devotion to him is unique and made more precious as they both know their love is intense and yet fragile.
Their passion is consumed through impatient embraces on a bed, ex-voto (a votive offering to a saint) hanging on the wall and forbidden thoughts in their heads, when all of a sudden the woman hears a voice calling from outside - sense of guilt or reality? - and runs reluctantly at the window, checking. Does the rest of the world, supposedly unaware, know about their secret? The last scenes show the same woman in a Church, confessing her sins, a cross hanging from her silky neck.
Directed by fashion photography star Giampaolo Sgura and starring Bianca Balti and Simone Nobili, this short movie that presents the Dolce&Gabbana Jewellery collection has all the right ingredients to engage: Italian flavours, beauty and passion stressed by Giuliano Sangiorgi’s (Negramaro’s leader) beautiful soundtrack.
It fully succeeds in recounting with poetry – and subtle erotism – a double love story: the one of the woman with her lover and the one between her and the Dolce&Gabbana Jewellery.
We know very well which one will last longer.
