GIORGIO ON THE LOOSE: In classic Giorgio Armani style, the designer had some things to say after his men’s wear show on Tuesday, which capped Milan Fashion Week, throwing the Italian press into a tizzy. His outburst contested how houses such as Prada and Dolce & Gabbana make men look ridiculous and blamed the press for not being more critical about clownish styles that men don’t wear. One of the reasons, he quipped, is that “fashion today is in the hands of the banks and of the stock market and not of their owners,” stressing how he doesn’t need to do an IPO because his company is independent and doesn’t have debts, and that his clothes make men look more handsome and elegant.

Both Prada and Dolce & Gabbana declined to comment.
