MILAN — Gucci’s decision to feature several men’s looks in its cruise ’08 runway show at Milk Studios in New York last week confirmed the luxury brand’s commitment to developing its men’s business. But more than that, it crystallized a significant and growing trend in men’s fashion: precollections.
Only a few months earlier, in January, Dolce & Gabbana gave a big nod to the vital November delivery when, for the first time, the designers sent out several pre-spring ’08 looks during their fall ’07 runway show in Milan—looks that debuted 10 months ahead of the time they are scheduled to appear in stores.

"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.
