Hats off to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana as they paid homage to Elio Fiorucci’s colorful and graphic style in their D&G show on Tuesday, with Fiorucci himself looking on. In these days of selfish egotistical fashion minds it’s heartening to find such a supreme demonstration of magnanimity – nice one guys!
Fiorucci said the duo have a special “antennae” to peg down what’s new.
Fiorucci himself was an innovator in the Seventies and Eighties, so it’s no surprise Dolce and Gabbana singled out the Fiorucci store, designed as a discotheque, as a prime Milan hangout.
“They say they felt at ease and in a different world,” said Fiorucci.
