Where the runway meets the street

Gosha Rubchinskiy recently sat down with Business of Fashion to reveal that he’ll be the special guest designer showing at Pitti Uomo’s 90th event next season (which is SS17, by the way). Each season, the Florentine trade fair invites a renowned designer to put on a special show at the event – previous guests have included Moschino, Hood By Air and White Mountaineering – and this time around, it’ll be Gosha.

Rubchinskiy also revealed just how his relationship with COMME des GARÇONS works – CdG owns the Gosha Rubchinskiy trademark, oversees the design and handles the production for the buzzed Russian designer’s collections. Essentially, he’s filling a creative director role, but for CdG rather than his own company.
