The designer got into trouble with celebrities when in March he granted an interview in Italian Magazine; Panorama speaking boldly against In-vitro fertilization (IVF), according to him then, kids born through IVF are "children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteruses for rent, semen chosen form a catalog. You are born to a mother and a father. Or at least that's how it should be"

The interview quickly went viral with big names including Sir Elton John leading a campaign to boycott the brand on Instagram, the designers later clarified but never apologised for the interview.
