So much for all designers getting along: Giorgio Armani has responded to a blog post Roberto Cavalli wrote this week in which he called Armani a "little king" who holds an unfair sway over Milan's fashion community.
"Cavalli should be quiet because the 'Little King' could start to get angry," was all an amused Armani had to say when asked about the other designer's rant.
The post, which appeared on Cavalli's blog on Sept. 11, was a little more verbose. In it, Cavalli complained that the Italian Chamber of Fashion bows its head to major design houses like Armani and Dolce & Gabbana when it schedules Milan Fashion Week and gives them preferential placement. Cavalli worries that journalists leaving Milan early for Paris Fashion Week, which starts on Sept. 25, will miss his show, scheduled for Sept. 24.
"As usual, the Camera Nazionale della Moda is washing its hands of the situation and it will not go against the wishes of 'Little King' Armani, and therefore the problems are mine alone," Cavalli wrote.
