Hogan and Simon Holloway are parting ways, in keeping with the Italian company’s strategy to set up temporary collaborations with international designers. “The agreement [with Holloway] was for two years,” said Hogan’s general manager Riccardo Sciutto. “We are happy with these four seasons together and satisfied with the results obtained.”
A former Jimmy Choo designer, Holloway joined Hogan in January 2014, establishing it as more than an accessories brand, showing comprehensive, on-trend collections, researching fabrics and adding a contemporary, fashion edge to the label. Prior to Jimmy Choo, Holloway worked for brands such as Narciso Rodriguez, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors and Richard Tyler.
Hogan is controlled by Tod’s SpA and is the group’s second most-important brand in terms of sales volumes. In the first nine months of the year, Hogan reported a 3.1 percent increase in revenues to 176.8 million euros, or $198.02 million. Hogan has been expanding outside Italy and registered positive results in all markets, including Greater China, in the period.
