Madonna wearing MDG sunglasses from Dolce & Gabanna

In a departure from our usual celebrity sunglasses posts, today we bring you some more about the new MDG sunglasses from Madonna and D&G.

In a press release Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana stated that;

“Designing an eyewear line with Madonna was a new experience for us. The oversized and wraparound designs are sexy and very feminine, like our clothes. Madonna’s creative contribution and unique point of view were key, even in designing the MDG logo”

Madonna herself, is the face of the MDG ad campaign which has been shot in New York by Steven Klein. In the campaign, Madonna is portrayed as a mysterious, sensual star of a film noir who is caught on camera with a somewhat intriguing man.

To help give a more a cinematographic feel, the whole campaign has been shot using a video camera. This allows both the film and the photographs to be reminiscent of a short film or an old-fashioned movie.

“The voyeuristic images metaphorically evoke the essence of a star such as Madonna: admired, spied, adored, pursued and desired, but never fully revealed, shrouded as she is in dark glasses and mystery.”

Sunglasses Direct has these new Madonna sunglasses in stock right now so why not get your hands on a pair without delay. Buy them on the website.
