MILAN — Positive yearend financial projections had Prada chief Patrizio Bertelli in a decidedly upbeat mood during a roundtable discussion organized here by luxury goods consultant Carlo Pambianco.
But as for the big news of the week — the resignations of Gucci Group’s Tom Ford and Domenico De Sole — Bertelli said he hadn’t expected “it would get to this. It’s a very delicate situation. I hope they will rethink their decision. I had gotten used to the competition with Gucci, which always pushed us to do better.”
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
