UNVEILING VIONNET: The first directly owned Vionnet store will be unveiled today in Milan. The unit is located in the same expansive, historic building housing the brand’s headquarters. A first franchised store opened in Kuwait City in February. Vionnet co-owner and chairman Matteo Marzotto is working on expanding the company’s retail network, with shops-in-shop in Russia and China.
In October, Vionnet tapped Italian twin sisters Barbara and Lucia Croce as creative directors, parting ways with Rodolfo Paglialunga.
