>> INSIDER WIRE —Don't expect Gucci or Versace to go for a major resort runway production, a la Chanel. Frida Giannini admits: "Although I have shown the Cruise collection on the runway on a couple of special occasions in the past, I feel that these pre-collections for both men and women, which are ultimately more commercially driven, are more appropriately presented to buyers and press in the showroom." And Donatella Versace agrees: "[Resort is] a commercial collection and having a full blown runway show can be confusing as it ruins the ‘commercialized’ moment." But Donatella is considering switching her runway shows up: “I’ve been thinking about doing a virtual runway show for over a year — we need to find a new formula.” [NYTimes]
