NEW YORK — With a potential initial public offering planned for the first half of 2013, Coty Inc. is officially in a quiet period. But the message sent by chief executive officer Michele Scannavini at the CEW Newsmaker Forum on Wednesday night was loud and clear: The aggressive corporate culture created by former ceo Bernd Beetz that helped propel the company into a $4.6 billion beauty conglomerate over a 10-year period is still very much in effect.
“Coty is about innovation,” he told the audience in his opening remarks. “We really like to look at the industry from a different angle. We are not happy with a safe bet, with banality.”
WWD asked a handful of creative directors to evaluate the September covers of leading women's fashion magazines. How do they think the covers this year compare with years gone by, and what do they say about the current status of the publication? Link in bio. (GIF by @hypebreast)
