John Varvatos Considers Switching to Milan Shows


Realizing there was no Varvatos show this year — just a party — we asked the designer what was up: "[September] is so late for menswear. The [men's] Milan shows are at the end of June, then you’ve got Paris right after that and … September is women’s. It’s not really men’s. And this year we just decided that it’s so late — it just didn’t make a lot of sense [to show]. We’re really seriously considering taking our shows to Milan because New York Fashion Week is not in step, time-wise, with men’s markets at all."
