Oct. 22, 2021 5:52 pm ETOverheard on a plane from New York to Detroit this Thursday: “Are you going to the Bottega Veneta show?” asked one black-clad editor. “No, I just really like cars,” wisecracked a similarly somber-looking retailer. It seemed unlikely that any impetus other than Bottega’s impending event would lead hundreds of fashion-industry folks—some of whom the Italian luxury fashion brand flew in by chartered jet—to congregate in Motor City. Although it’s not a typical stop on the fashion-week circuit, Detroit was once called the “Paris of the Midwest,” a name that dates back to a 1705 letter that Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, a French trader and colonist, sent his boss, heralding the city’s Parisian potential. (Monsieur Cadillac’s suit of arms, which was not wholly authentic, was eventually loosely translated into the Cadillac automobile logo.)
