MILAN — “Every day, when you walk through the door to your office, you know that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly’s wing in Brazil can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world,” said Gian Giacomo Ferraris, chief executive officer of Roberto Cavalli.
While quoting the Chaos Theory, Ferraris, whose successful track record includes the turnaround of Versace and who is now revamping the Cavalli brand, isn’t a pessimist — he’s merely grounded. Many of his peers share the same attitude as they face yet another round of Italian elections, scheduled for March 4, a week after the end of the Milan runway shows and in a country that is showing some signs of improved confidence — although who is likely to emerge as the winner is still anybody’s guess. Parties continue to spat and try to form coalitions since a new electoral law encourages parties to build alliances, and the specter of a second round at the polls if no majority is reached looms — including a hung parliament headed by current Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.

And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
