NOTABLY MISSING: As heat rises, business slows and many Italians move to the beach, the Camera della Moda released the official first draft of its September women’s fashion week calendar — with one of the biggest names missing from the lineup. According to a published report in La Repubblica, Jil Sander opted out of inclusion in the calendar and will hold two shows independently. And while women’s fashion week runs until Sept. 25, a majority of shows are crammed between Sept. 19 and 23, a fact the Italian daily attributed to the fear of many designers that fashion journalists and buyers will flee to Paris before the week is over.
