Not all anniversaries are celebrated Valentino and Dior style. This year, Luca Luca turned 15, a number that pales compared with 45 and 60. Yet for the firm's owner and designer, Luca Orlandi, the milestone is a weighty one. "It's an important birthday, and it forces you to make some considerations," he said. "The embryo phase is passed by."
Last month, Orlandi jetted to Istanbul for his own celebratory extravaganza cohosted by local magazine Alem, also turning 15. (The connection: his longtime company president, Yildiz Yuksek Blackstone, hails from Turkey.)
