Dolce & Gabbana Are "Well Done Chickens," Open New Store to Showcase Spring Chickens
Over Milan fashion week, in addition to putting on two runway shows, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana also opened a new store on the Via della Spiga (Milan's Fifth Ave.) called Spiga2. It's a unique concept store: The designers hand picked from the collections of 25 young designers to feature alongside their own accessories. Dolce & Gabbana are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. But they remember what it was like to be young and starting out. "We are like well-done chickens," they said, a little lost in translation. And it's time, they decided, to give back to the spring chickens out there. It's an admirable move, and the young designers they've selected (including some more well known names who show in New York like Yigal Azrouel and Sophie Theallet), are thrilled.
