HAPPY DAYS: Despite worries associated with global macroeconomic issues, the terrorist attacks in Paris and the unseasonably warm weather in the U.S. and parts of Europe, Remo Ruffini, chairman and chief executive officer of Moncler, said he was “very happy” with the group’s performance in 2015 and was hopeful about 2016.
The company leveraged “a solid job done in the past,” said Ruffini, who cited Italy and Europe as strong markets and noted that China also performed well. “I am confident in our strategy, which is solid and has deep roots,” said Ruffini after the brand’s Gamme Bleu show on Sunday. “We have a well-balanced distribution.”
The executive trumpeted three upcoming store openings: in London, New York and Seoul.
