Domenico Dolce, Stefano Gabbana Fete Milano Thunder Team

Team won the World Series of Boxing 2011/12 championship.

RING SIDE: Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana hosted a cocktail on Thursday night to celebrate the Milano Thunder team, which won the World Series of Boxing 2011/12 championship.  Dolce & Gabbana has been the name sponsor of the team since 2010.  The team arrived at the Bar Martini by Dolce & Gabbana on Milan’s Corso Venezia proudly showing the trophy lifted at London’s ExCel Arena on Wednesday night.

“Dolce & Gabbana is bringing us a lot of luck and we hope this collaboration will last for a long time,” said Milano Thunder’s captain Clemente Russo, who said he will next be in St. Petersburg, Russia, for a match with Italy’s national Boxing Team. While admitting he’d abandoned boxing due to an injury, a smiling Gabbana appeared in great shape at the event, and was excited by the recent office move from Via San Damiano to Viale Piave, next to the company’s theater Metropol, where the brand’s runway shows are held. “We moved both our offices and the women’s and men’s design teams,” he said.
