what the well-dressed shepherd is wearing this season
“My first trip to Italy was a hundred years ago!” Michael Roberts laughed at last night’s party to celebrate his new photo story collaboration with Dolce & Gabbana, The Good Shepherd, at the duo’s Madison Avenue store. Still smiling mischievously, Roberts then confessed that he was exaggerating just a bit—it was 1987, on a lark, but he fell in love enough to return to Sicily at least four times annually ever since. “I was in Italy this Easter, and Domenico Dolce asked me to do something with the clothes,” Roberts explained. “Something” turned into a book of elegantly rendered black-and-white photography shot over two days with accompanying English and Italian text, the story of a year in the life of a kind, hardworking, and admittedly hunky sheepherder. Not surprisingly, the titular character, a young man alternately scantily clad and donning leather and fur (sometimes both), dresses quite well for a country boy—all looks are from Dolce & Gabbana‘s Fall 08 Collection.
