ITALIAN JOB: Louis Vuitton will make a surprise appearance during Milan Fashion Week this fall. Word has it the French fashion giant is bringing its hit “Silent Writings” art exhibition from Paris, which includes rare Easter Island tablets, to the Italian fashion capital’s historic Palazzo Dugnani.
HOMEGROWN: Foodies were among the first to put buy-local into practice, so it’s only fitting their summer getaways would be just as environmentally friendly. Todd English’s jaunts to Nantucket can now be considered work related, since he has unveiled a Figs restaurant at 29 Fair, an inn near the heart of town. “Sideways” actor Paul Giamatti has already pulled up a chair at Figs. And chef Jacques Pépin didn’t have to travel too far from his Connecticut home to recharge at the Stone House, an Italianite seaside retreat circa 1854 that bowed this summer in Little Compton, R.I. He popped into the restaurant’s kitchen to have a look, but left the cooking to the staff. Another guest, the comedian and “Sex and the City”-er Mario Cantone may have been envisioning roasts of another kind. He is on the roster to grill Joan Rivers at hers next month.
