Franca Sozzani Serves Duck For Breakfast

-------

Friday morning attracted an impressive assortment of fashion identities at the Raleigh hotel in Miami as Vogue Italia‘s Franca Sozzani hosted a breakfast to unveil—wait for it—a duck. Not just any duck, however. This one, a giant resin sculpture (pictured at left) measuring in around one meter, is British contemporary artist Stuart Semple’s ode to the iconic mascot of Moncler. “It’s just a very funny and different way of seeing the symbol of the brand,” attested Sozzani, who, with sister Carla, greeted Bruce Weber, Roxanne Lowit, Bob Colacello, Thom Browne, and Stefano Tonchi (complete with his tennis racquet fresh from an early morning match). Next up on the duck’s itinerary is Aspen for a Moncler store opening at the end of the month, followed by an auction with all proceeds from the Moncler Toy Charity Project to be donated to the Child Priority Foundation.

    Ah yes Franca and especially her sister Carla are famous for their love to animals. But now serious, both where there for some shows and to show themself to the public. It’s only PR and nothing else, I’m sorry to say this about the Sozzani sisters. Franca does a good job at Vogue Italy but what does her sister do to promote the Vogue editions. In Italy not a thing so I’m surprised that she showed up with het older sister, Franca in Miami or whatever city? Maybe you can help me with it? I hope you would, because it’s a nice entourage to Franca but further Carla has nothing to tell, at least not in my country (Italy)
