HUNKS IN TRUNKS:Five swimmers from the Italian national team – Nicola Cassio, Paolo Bossini, Emiliano Brembilla, Alessandro Terrin and Mirko Di Tora – who are the faces (and bodies) of the new Dolce & Gabbana underwear ad campaign for spring, sat front row at the house’s runway show on Saturday. “We’re used to being in our trunks. It’s more uncomfortable being in a suit,” said Cassio, thumbing his tailor made black Dolce & Gabbana two piece. Of the racy campaign, Di Tora added: “We’re curious to know what people think, but personally I’m more worried about my granny’s reaction.” The quintet will be competing at the World Swimming Championship in Rome from July 27. Continuing their links with the sporting world, Dolce & Gabbana will soon be outfitting another athlete, Belarusian heavyweight boxer Andrei Arlovski, known affectionately as The Pitbull, for his bout in Las Vegas in July – trunks and all.
