Milan and London Weeks join forces with anti-Brexit message

Dec 12 (Reuters) - 's Chamber (CNMI) announced on Thursday a collaboration with the British Council which will bring part of London's week to Milan's men's fall-winter collections in January.

On the day that UK citizens vote in an election that will either pave the way for Brexit or propel the country towards another referendum on the issue, CNMI's president said that 's capital would host Stella McCartney, and streetwear brand A-Cold-Wall by Samuel Ross.

"It's a political message of collaboration. Too many frontiers aren't good for the system. Surely, it is also a message from our English friends to say that even with Brexit, they want to keep being part of the (European ) system," Carlo Capasa said in a press conference.

He added that was a "bridge between nations".

While it will be the first time in Milan for Samuel Ross - nominated as British Emerging Menswear Designer of the year at the 2018 Awards - McCartney and McQueen are not new to the Italian catwalks.

McCartney showcased her designs in June's Men Week. McQueen's collection was last in Milan in 2014.

A space for a "London show room" in which 10 emerging English designers and five Italians will be presented, will also be opened during Milan's week, which will run Jan. 10 - 14.
