Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are set to receive the Ambrogino D’oro, the most
prestigious prize awarded by the city of Milan to prominent citizens for their contribution to humanitarian
and social causes.
The award, which has been given out for the past 45 years, gets its name from Saint Ambrogio, Milan’s patron
saint, who is celebrated on the same day the award is given.
“We are extremely honoured and excited to receive this award,” Gabbana told WWD. “Milan is not only our city and
where our home is, but also the place that allowed us to make our dream come true. Milan has given us a lot and we
cannot be but happy that our work contributed to its well-being.”

When Andy Loveland wanted to get his three-year-old son riding a bike sans training wheels, he could not find a
product on the market that suited his needs.
So instead of winging about it or settling for an imperfect product, he set out to create a bike that would meet
his requirements, and evidently the requirements of other parents, resulting in the conception of Early Rider
What Andy created was a bike that would allow parents to teach their children how to ride safely, without using
stabilisers. Mr. Loveland made the bikes with a sit and go philosophy, ensuring children could do exactly that,
learning first to balance, pedal free and gradually moving up to steering.
The stylish and safe bikes are exquisitely crafted in FSC approved birch veneer with various chic design details, like the
retro embossed flame, making them a green and stylish accessory for your fashionable on-the-go tot.
