Schools in Italy might have just closed for summer vacation, but that didn’t stop Au Jour Le Jour Garçon designers Diego Marquez and Mirko Fontana from re-creating a classroom in Florence’s Dogana venue for their debut runway show with journalists and buyers seated at colorful school desks.
In keeping with the playful set, the collection paid tribute to school life with buses, pencils, erasers and glue bottles, which were printed on cotton pants and asymmetric apron-shirts and embroidered on washed denim jackets and trousers. The designers also experimented with tailoring, delivering easy, cool suits with classic blazers and cropped narrow pants addressed to the youngest generation of fashion customers.

"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.
