PARIS — After protracted and politically sensitive talks to offload La Redoute, Kering announced on Wednesday it had entered exclusive negotiations with two of its senior managers who have presented a takeover plan for the struggling catalog retailer, plus delivery network Relais Colis.
Nathalie Balla, chairman and chief executive officer of La Redoute, and Eric Courteille, chief administrative officer of mail-order division Redcats, were the latest bidders to emerge in the process, which practically completes Kering’s transition out of retail into fashion and accessories in the luxury and sport-lifestyle segments.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
