Viva Italia! Rules of Style from 11 Milan-Based Designers

Now that Milan Fashion Week is in full swing, we're taking a look back at our favorite pieces of advice from some of the city's biggest design stars.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

Dolce: "Twenty years ago it was all about being a businessman and having a wife and children and hiding sentiments. Men seemed frustrated and unhappy. Today, they've been liberated and are much more serene and self-possessed. We're in a world where men have discovered their own identities and discovered it's bello to want to be beautiful."

Gabbana: "Men like being liked and like taking care of themselves, but not in a narcissistic way—it's not muscles at any cost. They do so with great spontaneity, self-irony, and balance. When it comes to clothes, they love to change their outfits according to the occasion. More than being fashionable, they've developed a sense of style and understand the function of clothes."
