A Bite at Marc Jacobs... Chris Brown to Milan... Jump-Start on the Globes...

In April, shoppers at the Marc by Marc Jacobs store in Milan can pull up a chair at the brand’s first cafe and bar.

FLORENTINE FETES: The nine lives of Lars Nilsson continued this week as the former designer of Gianfranco Ferré, Nina Ricci and Bill Blass launched his signature collection, Mr. Nils, during Pitti Uomo. “I wanted to do this in Florence because it’s men’s wear and Italy does a lot of the components,” said Nilsson, referring to his partner in the venture, the clothing manufacturer Mabro. Inside the Museo Marino Marini, a sculpture museum, slim dark suits were displayed on mannequins, which were elevated among the artworks on their pedestals. Nearby, preppy outdoor looks were modeled among photos and a film of a Swedish snow scene. “He wears these in the city, and those in the country on the weekend,” said Nilsson, explaining the dichotomy.

Later that night, Brunello Cucinelli hosted a sumptuous dinner party at the Palazzo Budini Gattai. Guests discreetly gawked at the impeccably preserved 15th-century mansion before sitting down to pasta, grilled steak and, of course, wine.
