MILAN — The year 2017 is one of transition for Salvatore Ferragamo SpA and 2018 will be one of “hard work,” Eraldo Poletto, chief executive officer of the Florence-based company, said Tuesday.
“We have to be stronger, do what’s right, there are a lot of things happening — big changes — and we have to be in sync with the changes,” Poletto said in addressing analysts in a conference call as the group reported a 28.3 percent decrease in net profit, including a negative minority interest of 3 million euros, to 79 million euros in the first nine months of the year. This compares with 110 million euros in the same period last year.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
