JOINING BAUMER: Reinforcing management in anticipation of its first freestanding boutique, Place Vendôme jeweler Lorenz Bäumer has named Cristina Egal its managing director. Egal joined the firm earlier this month and reports to Bäumer, the president, founder and creative force behind the firm founded in 1992.
Previously, Egal operated a namesake communications agency and boasted such clients as BNP Paribas, Sodexo, Servair and Fondation Claude Pompidou. Also a food aficionado, Egal has published a book of her recipes, operated her own restaurant in Paris and launched two Relais & Châteaux properties, plus a gourmet television channel.
Bäumer, who also designs fine jewelry for Louis Vuitton, plans to open a signature boutique at 19 Place Vendôme in the first half of 2013.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
