At the conclusion of his menswear show in Milan on Tuesday, Giorgio Armani told the Italian press that other top fashion houses, including Prada and Dolce & Gabbana, had produced ridiculous-looking collections that no man would ever wear. He blamed the press for withholding criticism, exclaiming, “Fashion today is in the hands of the banks and of the stock market and not of their owners." In a direct insult to Prada, he added that he doesn't need to go public because his company doesn't have debts, is independent, and produces clothing that makes men look handsome and elegant. [WWD]
