The rumour had been circulating since April, and now it is official: on Tuesday, the US designer of the 1017 Alyx 9SM label will join Givenchy, succeeding Clare Waight Keller as the luxury label's creative director.
On Thursday, African-American designer Clemens Telfar treated Pitti's audience to a show-event that will go down in history, his artist friends treading a giant banqueting table in party/live performance mode.
At Milan Men's Fashion Week, Dorian Tarantini for M1992 and Luca Magliano for Magliano showcased two high-calibre collections, well-crafted down to the last detail, each with a distinctive personality.
John Varvatos will return to Pitti next January, as the American designer makes his reentry into the European orbit. He will present all three of his lines inside Pitti’s central nerve system, Fortezza da Basso.
