In an interview with La Repubblica, translated by WWD, the designer says, "With the sale of our luxury labels to foreigners, our entire system risks falling into second league," noting that even her brethren have fled Milan — like Raf Simons, now working in Paris, where "his value will further be emphasized." But she doesn't blame the rosy-cheeked Dior creative director (hey, Miuccia shows her Miu Miu collection in the City of Light). Instead, she calls out the Italian media for considering fashion "frivolous," along with intellectuals and left-leaning politicians, who "remain diffident toward wealth and glamour."
