Italy's fashion industry is about to get a little smaller.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have temporarily closed all nine of their Dolce & Gabbana stores in Milan for no other reason than that Milan's Councillor for Commerce publicly dissed the designers and this really pissed them off.
Last weekend, revelers all over the world gathered for parades and partying on the street in celebration of Pride Week. With the recent DOMA repeal behind us here in the States, the festivities were bright (duh) and the outfits were brighter. From Istanbul to San Francisco to Panama City, thousands of bodies marched and danced wrapped in shiny lamé, covered in feathers, and adorned with face paint. We gathered some of the wackiest looks from the festivities, including humongous Golden Girls heads with 'fro picks, a Lady Gaga-esque rotary phone headpiece, and some sort of clown crying tears of string (or are they really long eyelashes?). Let's just say that if your pride is proportional to your costume, these folks might be the proudest of them all.
When Italian fashion editor and OG street style star Anna Piaggi died back in August of last year, the world lost a true style icon. She left behind countless "doppie pagine" (double page spreads, known as “DP”s) in Vogue Italia--and a treasure trove of clothing. Her clothing collection was supposed to go on display at Milan's Fabbrica Del Vapore culture center, but according to The Wall Street Journal, the plan fell apart, and Piaggi's clothes are now hanging in a storage space awaiting their fate.
Here's one fashion exhibit you won't want to miss (if you can swing a flight to Milan): Anna Piaggi’s fabulously eccentric fashion collection is about to go on permanent display.
Traditionally, Milan has been home to strong luxury fashion businesses that, more so than anywhere else, are owned by the families of their founding designer. However, many of them have begun (or are rumored to be) looking into other development options like IPOs, selling to conglomerates or royalty, or looking elsewhere, like Paris, to show and grow their businesses. First lady of Italian fashion and all-around smart lady Miuccia Prada recently voiced her opinion on the matter of Italian brands leaving Italy in a rare interview with La Republicca (reports WWD), and it's not particularly optimistic. “With the sale of our luxury labels to foreigners, our entire system risks falling into second league,” Prada said, “Because if our brands cross our borders, the credit, glamour, fame and decision making is in the hands of others, and we are abandoned, downgraded."
