Eva Jean has been named wholesale director at La Perla. She succeeds Julie LeStrange, who has left the company.
Previously, Jean was the director of wholesale at Vilebrequin and has experience working in both men’s and boys’ luxury resortwear. In the new role, Jean will oversee the wholesale business in the North America region in categories ranging from lingerie to women’s beachwear, as well as La Perla’s recently launched men’s wear. She will report to Suzy Biszantz, La Perla’s North American chief executive officer.
“Eva’s experience in swimwear and men’s wear will be an asset to our organization, as we have launched men’s recently, and continue to see swimwear, both men’s and women’s, as a long-term growth opportunity in North America,” Biszantz said.
