NEW DELHI — Following on the heels of Angela Missoni’s much publicized visit to India, Alberto Piantoni, chief executive of Missoni SpA, was in New Delhi and Mumbai making concrete the plans the creative director and co-owner of the brand hinted at for the country.
“We are planning to enter the Indian market with a strong emphasis on accessories,” Angela Missoni said as she participated in conferences in Jaipur and Mumbai last month, while observing that for many brands it was their strong global presence, especially in emerging economies, that helped them get past the economic meltdown in 2008 and 2009. She spoke about the natural bond and love of color shared by Italy and India, a point that Piantoni emphasized.

"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)
