How do you say 'lame' in Italian?
After all the hoopla over Jil Sander returning to her own label, the woman decided she won't be showing at Milan Fashion Week.
According to a report in La Repubblica, Sander has opted to host two separate and independent shows on a date that's to be determined.
The Camera della Moda even offered to organize a show at Castello, the designer's usual spot, but she said 'no grazie'.
Stubborn, isn't she?
Whatever Jil has in store, we hope it's worth the wait and doesn't disappoint.

Miuccia Prada rarely sits for interviews, but she made an exception for La Repubblica.
The fashion designer chat very candidly with the Italian newspaper on fashion and politics, and we have all the deets.
Miz Prada touched everything about luxury brands leaving Italy, designers brushing off Italy and the Italian Press and politicians not taking fashion seriously.

If Giorgio Armani hoped Roberto Cavalli would give his hotel a rave review, he better think again.
The Italian designer told La Repubblica newspaper:
"Have you seen that new hotel? It looks like a psychiatric hospital. Of course, I love Armani."
Maybe you'd like to invite King Giorgio to stay at your hotel. Oh wait…you don't have one.

Silvio Berlusconi received a very public tongue lashing from Anna Wintour.
Vogue's editor-in-chief told La Repubblica newspaper she's disgusted by the scandal-plagued Prime Minister who is famous for having bunga bunga sex parties, paying for sex, and having sexual relations with underage girls.
"I have no other words. I am disgusted and embarrassed: How can Italy tolerate Silvio Berlusconi and his bevy of girls?"
She also encouraged Italian women to stand up to the "dictator" by protesting fashion week.
