Dolce’s Forward Line

Dolce & Gabbana is outfitting the Chinese Olympic National Soccer team off the field.

MILAN — Dolce & Gabbana is extending its relationship with soccer all the way to China.

The Italian fashion house is outfitting the Chinese Olympic National Soccer team off the field.

The venture follows similar deals with AC Milan and with the Italian National Team, winners of last year’s World Cup. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana selected slim, single-button, black “Martini” suits, black skinny ties and trim white shirts for a streamlined, modern look. More-casual pieces include silver nylon bombers, jeans, T’s, and sweaters with satin hoods.

The Chinese players will sport the suits during their European summer tour, a warm-up to next summer’s Olympics in Beijing.
