D&G launch Messi book

Dolce&Gabbana have announced the launch of a new photobook crafted with and featuring Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.

The Argentine, who has a sponsorship agreement with the Italian designers, has sat for Domenico Dolce in a serious of photographic portraits.

Geared towards presenting the 25-year-old ‘in a very private dimension’, the photobook project also includes a calendar and a limited run of t-shirts with photos of Messi printed on them.

Proceeds from the sale of these items will be donated to the player’s charity, the Leo Messi Foundation.

Messi will attend the project’s launch in Milan on June 22, whilst the photobook will then be made available worldwide by November.
