Gucci to Forgo Co-ed Format, Return to Men’s Fashion Week

Milan Fashion Week Men’s is three months away, but it’s getting an unexpected boost, courtesy of Gucci. The Italian fashion brand will be returning to the January edition with a men’s wear show to be held on Jan. 14, after deciding to go coed in 2017. That would be the last day of the next edition, as Milan Fashion Week Men’s is slated to run Jan. 10 to 14, 2020.

In a letter sent to Italy’s Camera della Moda president Carlo Capasa, Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci, thanking the fashion association for the invitation to return to Milan Fashion Week Men’s, said “the Milan fashion shows embody the strength and beauty of Made in Italy. Milan Fashion Week is a central event in the fashion world’s calendar and confirms Italy’s fundamental role — for creativity and manufacturing alike — in the luxury sector.”
