Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana paid homage to Elio Fiorucci’s colorful and graphic style in their D&G show on Tuesday, with Fiorucci himself looking on.
Fiorucci said the duo have a special “antennae” to peg down what’s new.
Fiorucci himself was an innovator in the Seventies and Eighties, so it’s no surprise Dolce and Gabbana singled out the Fiorucci store, designed as a discotheque, as a prime Milan hangout.
“They say they felt at ease and in a different world,” said Fiorucci.
Katy Perry was also expected at D&G, as she had been at Roberto Cavalli earlier in the week, but the singer took ill and also had to cancel her concert in Milan scheduled for Tuesday night.
