Last month, as the Paris collections were winding down, I went to a dinner in Azzedine’s kitchen, celebrated for its impromptu gatherings and delicious, homey food — often prepared by Azzedine himself. Carla Sozzani, his close friend and business collaborator, was there. So was the Milan publicist Emanuela Schmeidler, the stylist Joe McKenna, and the long-time Italian Vogue art director Luca Stoppini. I could remember other nights in the kitchen, with Naomi, or Kanye West, or Marc Newson, or Rei Kawakubo.
