PARIS — Under new ownership since last year, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac is brimming with projects.
South Korean sportswear designer and retailer EXR Korea Co., which bought the brand after it went into receivership, has named In Soo John general manager of its PMJC subsidiary, in charge of the premium JC de Castelbajac brand and the JC/DC by JC de Castelbajac diffusion line, WWD has learned.
In Soo was formerly managing director of Pacific Création Parfum et Beauté, the Paris-based subsidiary of South Korean cosmetics firm AmorePacific, which holds the perfume license to the de Castelbajac brand.
