Stefano Gabbana Says Men’s Fashion Is Not for ‘Weirdos’; Lady Gaga Recycles Gun Bra

• Stefano Gabbana: “In the past two decades, men’s fashion underwent a profound yet silent revolution. There was the urge to scream a message of change, because in the Eighties and Nineties fashion — or anything more innovative — was perceived as something for gay men or weirdos. It’s not like that anymore. Men crave fashion and buy and change their clothes based on the occasion. For us, the big break happened at the end of the Nineties, when we started working with David Beckham, a hot, straight man with a family and kids.” [WWD]
