Canali is planning a multipronged celebration of its 75th anniversary this year, one that includes its first runway show, the opening of a new showroom in Milan and the relocation of its U.S. headquarters.
The Italian luxury men’s wear brand, which was founded in 1934 by Giacomo and Giovanni Canali, will host a dinner and runway show for the spring/summer 2010 collection at its new Milan office on June 22 as the centerpiece of the birthday bash. Details are being kept under wraps but Giorgio Canali, president of the company’s North American operations, said the evening will also serve to show off the new showroom space, which is on Via Lodovico il Moro in a former warehouse district in the southern part of Milan. The building is close to 15,000 square feet, he noted, and was purchased by the company. He characterized the neighborhood as “younger, hipper and trendier. And we thought we could do the same thing in New York,” Canali said.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
