When Puig acquired a majority stake in Jean Paul Gaultier in 2011, it was the latest signal that the Spanish firm was serious about owning brands, not only licensing them to sell fragrances, but about becoming a more formidable player in the fashion world.
A year later, Puig brought in industry veteran Ralph Toledano to head up its fashion division, sending up another flare about its ambitions, given the Frenchman’s track record building such houses as Karl Lagerfeld, Guy Laroche and Chloé.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
