A GUY THING: In between production of a Rumble Strips album and a remix of King of Leon works, music meister Mark Ronson took a day off to attend the Gucci show — given his newfound passion for clothes. Wearing a slim brick-brown corduroy suit, Ronson said he got hooked on fashion more than a year ago when he did a shoot for GQ. “I said to myself, ‘I want to start dressing like that!’”

Speaking of GQ, the magazine’s party Saturday gave designers a chance to unwind, and catch up with each other. Thom Browne, for example, was locked in conversation at the bar with Italo Zucchelli of Calvin Klein Collection. “I’ve never been [in Milan] during this week before,” said Browne, in town to launch Moncler Gamme Bleu. “It’s exciting and so different from New York.” Zucchelli, who for this season is showing in New York instead of Milan, said, “It’s so nice to be here without having to show, and be able to just see my friends. But get ready for New York....” Angela Missoni came with her husband and sometime design inspiration, Bruno Ragazzi. “Can he be in my picture? Because it’s the men’s season, after all,” she said to a photographer. Designers Nick Hart, Brian Atwood of Bally, Ennio Capasa of Costume National, Massimilliano Giornetti of Salvatore Ferragamo and Graeme Fidler of Aquascutum also made appearances.
