If you happen to be in Milan, make sure to check Etro’s new store, and if you’re in Ginza, Gucci is letting you take a look into its 102 years of brand history and archives. There’s also been some Kid Cudi statues that have popped up in Paris and in LA, the “Diva” exhibition in London, and a lot more.
