Best known for being half of the design team Dolce & Gabbana, Domenico Dolce has decided to show the world that his passions also reside in photography. This month, he releases his first book, Campioni (Rizzoli; $200), available at Dolce & Gabbana Bal Harbour. It highlights 67 iconic and up-and-coming soccer players destined to take their sport into the future. Shot in portrait format, each athlete plays a character appearing against a stark, white background to highlight his personality and features. There is a palpable connection between Dolce and his subjects that can be seen throughout the book. Stefano Gabbana, Dolce’s longtime partner, adds: “In Domenico’s photos, fashion and sport meet and confront themselves. They talk about style and male aesthetic. His images do not promote a product—they are portraits. They speak to the heart.” Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-866- 0503
