Giorgio Armani is also hardly shy about defending the originality of his designs. On Monday, he took a swing at Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, accusing the designers of copying his quilted pants from fall 2008 and putting them on the Dolce & Gabbana runway Saturday for fall 2009.
“For now they copy, later on they will learn,” Armani said after his Emporio show on Sunday.
