BELSTAFF GETS BUSY: Belstaff will hold its first runway show in New York on Sept. 10 at IAC, after presenting creative director Martin Cooper’s collection last season in London. That same week, the British luxury brand will unveil its first U.S. store at 814 Madison Avenue, which has been designed by William Sofield. To help with all this activity, Belstaff chief executive officer Harry Slatkin is bolstering his team: Fiorenzo Schincaglia, most recently senior vice president at Giorgio Armani, has been brought on as president and commercial director for Europe, Middle East, and Asia. Jeff Lasota was recently hired to oversee wholesale and retail as president of U.S. sales. Lasota joins Belstaff from Stella McCartney, where he was president of the U.S.
