David Gandy’s partnership with Dolce & Gabbana started a long time ago by any, especially fashion’s, standard. The model became the face of the brand’s iconic Light Blue fragrance in 2007 that, he later admitted, changed his life and career overnight (he eventually became Britain’s highest-paid male model and currently has almost one million Instagram followers). Since then Gandy has become a constant in every Dolce & Gabbana menswear campaign, including its latest spring/summer 2020 eyewear collection that just debuted.

The campaign in question was shot by Peruvian fashion photographer Mariano Vivanco in Sicily, also a long-time collaborator of the Italian brand who most recently worked with them on the new K Fragrance campaign in 2019.

The eyewear collection consists of three super sleek styles—a pair of dark, gold-framed aviators; a modern double-bridged design; and two elegant optical frames, that are already available on the company’s website.

We are especially fond of the eyewear frames—one of the styles sports soft geometric angles and is cool yet sophisticated while the other one has a classic square shape.

Gandy also announced the news on his Instagram page, writing, “in a world obsessed with selfies and product placement, such an honour to still be producing work like this with some of the greatest creatives and artists in the fashion industry,” and posted three of the campaign shots.
