MILAN — Veteran fashion executive Giancarlo di Risio is in a pharmacological coma, following a heart and respiratory collapse, according to sources.

Di Risio was instrumental in the launch of young lines for designer brands such as Versace and Dolce & Gabbana in the Nineties, as chief executive officer of Ittierre, those labels’ licensee.

After a stint at Fendi, Versace tapped di Risio in 2004 as the company’s ceo.

Di Risio left Versace in 2009, returning to his hometown of Isernia, Italy.
