Few fashion weeks are as international as Paris Menswear season, especially during the pandemic. As designers and marques never reach the French capital yet are determined to be listed on its official show schedule.
Never before had Milan Fashion Week Men showcased so many new international labels, notably Tíscar Espadas and Mans from Spain, Franc Elis and Zenam from Africa, and 424 from California, all waiting to be discovered.
The US executive, who has made a name for himself in top roles for leading luxury groups like Prada, LVMH and Valentino, is the new CEO of Trussardi. His main goal is to promote the label’s expansion in foreign markets.
No city stages fashion presentations as succinctly as Milan, all the way through the past week, which ended with the city closing its doors dramatically on Sunday after the first deaths from the coronavirus in Italy.
Luxury brand Trussardi, owned by investment fund QuattroR since February 2019, has reevaluated its distribution and begun a brand revival with a more coherent and premium offer and new creative collaborations.
Six months after taking control of the Italian fashion house, the QuattroR fund has put a new management team in place with ex-PVH Maela Mandelli appointed as CEO and Giuseppe Pinto as director of operations.
