Milan Fashion Week starts on Tuesday 17 with an exciting calendar featuring new names like Boss and Peter Pilotto; a host of Chinese designers and emerging talent; and Italy’s leading labels, except for Roberto Cavalli.
After envisaging a major Parisian presence at 386 rue Saint-Honoré, where Dior inaugurated a pop-up store at the end of 2017, the luxury label will instead open a 900 m2 flagship at number 261 on the same street.
The bid for a 100% stake in Roberto Cavalli by the Dubai property group, made via a subsidiary, has convinced Cavalli’s current owner Clessidra, the label and the tribunal, but a final court ruling is still required.
The show staged by Carine Roitfeld to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Florentine boutique brought together more than 3,000 people on Thursday to celebrate fashion with rhinestones, VIPs and heaps of creativity.
Italian fashion group OTB is planning to invest 200 million euros ($226 million) over the next three years, potentially in acquiring other brands, after boosting its financial strength in 2018, it said on Monday.
