SAME OLD STORY: What is Italian fashion week without a little finger pointing? Roberto Cavalli didn’t mince words before his Just Cavalli show on Friday, accusing Gucci of “entirely” copying his designs from two years ago and last season. “It’s outrageous for these big names to copy those that are slightly smaller. It annoys me because if we want to overcome the crisis, we must be serious and honest with one another,” said the Italian designer. A Gucci spokeswoman said the company had no comment.
