MILAN — Emerging from one of its worst spells in memory, Italy’s beauty industry is attempting to innovate its way back to prosperity.
Some of Milan’s leading retailers, including La Rinascente, Mazzolari and Gruppo Coin, plan to open new floors, departments or concept stores devoted largely to niche perfumery. Meanwhile, Intercos, the industry’s premier color cosmetics supplier, is flirting with the prospect of going public in 2014.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
