FLORENCE — Desmo, one of the most established Florentine leather goods companies, is taking a more upscale path to sales growth.
Starting with the fall collection, Gabriele Fantappiè, the owner of Desmo, and creative director Alberta Dalla have eliminated the more basic looks in the line and have added more novelty looks and special trims. Aimed at customers over 40, these core styles were a hit in the Eighties and Nineties and accounted for more than 50 percent of company sales.
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)
