MILAN — Salvatore Ferragamo Group said Friday that, following its annual general meeting, Ferruccio Ferragamo was nominated executive chairman and James Ferragamo vice chairman. The chairman has been granted full power and authority to manage the company. The Ferragamo board’s approval on March 8 of the 2017 balance sheet marked the appointment of Ferruccio Ferragamo as interim chief executive officer following the exit of Eraldo Poletto.
On Friday, the group’s board appointed Gucci veteran Micaela Le Divelec as its new chief corporate officer — although in Italian her role was described as general director. She will report to Ferruccio Ferragamo. Le Divelec and James Ferragamo, who is also brand and product officer, have been designated as strategic managers of the company together with chief financial officer Ugo Giorcelli.

And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek
