Sunday: Next up for us was Dolce & Gabbana’s “Italian Journey,” which featured their conversation with Alexandra Shulman. There’s no denying the depth of Stefano and Domenico’s vision, and their unwavering commitment to it. The question, though, remained: would their recent controversies overshadow the talk? The answer? No. By launching into a discussion on Dolce & Gabbana’s Alta Moda, the conversation stayed on the work. Throughout the talk, Stefano and Domenico were witty, playful and opinionated.

Unsurprisingly, these two almost seemed like relics of another time. Stefano has pulled back somewhat from social media in recent years. Domenico revealed that he doesn’t have an email address (Did we hear that right?). They’re also resisting changes happening elsewhere in the industry. They won’t consider launching their collections simultaneously with their runway shows, as Burberry, Tom Ford and Vetements have recently chosen to do. Furthermore, Stefano and Domenico reject the idea of combining the men’s and women’s shows. “Men are men, and women are women,” pronounced Stefano, his finger waving in the air, even as Alexandra offered possible logistical solutions.

This weekend we attended the Vogue Festival 2016, which marked its fifth year and coincided with Vogue 100. As usual, it was a great time.

Saturday: We first headed over to Vogue World, on the East Albert Lawn in Kensington Gardens. Vogue World is the tent where the festival attendees had the most interaction with industry experts. Brands such as Tom Ford, Bobbi Brown and Jo Malone offered makeovers and massages. Attendees could shop for limited-edition merchandise in the Vogue Shop, or have coffee in the Vogue Cafe. Of course there were many opportunities to fashion spot in Vogue World. Gucci conquered. It was everywhere.

Our first event was “A World of Fashion, A Life in Vogue.” It took place across the street at the Royal Geographic Society. Fashion rock star Grace Coddington would converse with fashion director Lucinda Chambers. Grace talked about her history with both American and British Vogue, reflecting on a time less hurried. Research played a central a role in creating Grace’s early fashion editorials.
