Roberto Cavalli is close to securing a buyer
Struggling Italian fashion house Roberto Cavalli may be close to securing a buyer in a deal with Dubai-based real estate developer Damac. Two other offers have also been submitted to the Italian bankruptcy court, with a final decision expected to be announced later this week. The question remains whether investors will be able to turn around the business, much like Blackstone Group did when it invested in Versace and then sold it to Capri Holdings. {Business of Fashion}

The Paris Men's shows featured theatrical sets and understated fashion
The latest Men's collections presented in Paris last week were somewhat confusing, underwhelming and, at times, even offensive to critics, including Business of Fashion's Angelo Falccavento. "Theatrics were played up to cover a certain unworthiness of ideas and, sometimes, downright total nothingness," writes Flaccavento. "It's the clothes that must do the storytelling." He also went on to describe Virgil Abloh's presentation for Off-White as particularly "disrespectful." {Business of Fashion}

Cathy Horyn on fashion's tribute to Karl Lagerfeld
"Lives like Lagerfeld's are too big and fascinating not to memorialize. He left traces of himself everywhere," writes The Cut's Cathy Horyn of the late Karl Lagerfeld, whose memorial service was held in Paris last week. A staggering 2,500 guests — many from the fashion world — gathered in the Grand Palais to memorialize the designer in a way that "all tied together and nicely inferred the range of Lagerfeld's tastes," according to Horyn. {The Cut}
