It’s beginning to look a lot like Gucci chez Barneys.
After naming former Gucci North America president Daniella Vitale chief merchant and executive vice president on Monday, Barneys New York chief executive officer Mark Lee — the former Gucci ceo — tapped Charlotte Blechman as senior vice president of marketing and communications.
Blechman started at Gucci in 1995, and by 1998 became its director of worldwide celebrity relations. She moved to Gucci Group’s Yves Saint Laurent division as vice president of public relations in 2001, and returned to Gucci to serve in that role in 2004.
Blechman left Gucci last December and has served as an industry consultant since. At Barneys, she will report to Lee.
