LUCKY CHIEF: Former Guess Inc. executive Carlos Alberini is coming back to fashion, as chairman and chief executive officer of Lucky Brand. Alberini resigned his post as co-ceo at Restoration Hardware Holdings Inc. effective Jan. 31 to lead Lucky, which Fifth & Pacific Cos. Inc. agreed to sell to Leonard Green & Partners this week. Alberini will take the reins from David DeMattei. Chief creative officer Patrick Wade is also leaving the company, although both executives will stay at the brand through the closing of the deal.
