Milan-based Mr Gabbana purchased the luxury home in Regent’s Park Road, valued at £15.5million, from company Westheath Projects Limited, according to Land Registry documents.

It is understood that the billionaire fashion mogul had been locked in a fierce bidding battle with artist and film director Ms Taylor-Johnson and her actor husband, who already live in Primrose Hill.

But Mr Gabbana is believed to have finally outbid the couple last month to secure the home.

The 51-year-old set up luxury international fashion house Dolce & Gabbana with former partner Domenico Dolce.

They split romantically after 23 years in 2005 but continue to run their business together.

Ms Taylor-Johnson recently directed the film adaptation of erotic romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey, due for release next year.
