Dolce&Gabbana Launches Its New Hero Pillar, to Take on the Men’s Fragrance Market
K by Dolce&Gabbana is presented in an uncompromisingly masculine and never-before seen bottle, created by Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana. This is the story an Italian man, a born leader, inspiring his friends, taking care of his family - he is a King of everyday life.
