Fashion Week roundup
Now that Milan Fashion Week is over and at long last Paris Fashion Week is upon us, here's what's happened since my last post: Frida Giannini's first collection for Gucci was a stinker... or maybe not--retailers are pissed, but she took a more modest, anti-Tom Ford route, much like Chloe and Stella McCartney (but not quite so boho). I'm guessing that, like Marc Jacobs' fall 2005 collection, this is going to be a collection that everyone pans at first, then later comes to love. Dolce & Gabbana, no longer lovers, threw a 20th-anniversary party--for their clothing label. Their collection, however, got panned by Cathy Horyn. Suzy Menkes, on the other hand, appears to have liked Gucci, as well as Armani, D&G and Fendi, Miu Miu, and even Versace. (Is there nothing this woman doesn't like?)

Suzy has also provided us with a handy Milan trends cheat-sheet. The unabridged version: Complete reviews from WWD.
