The Italian label has confided the North American market to luxury industry veteran Daniella Vitale and the EMEA region (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) to Vincenzo Equestre, who joins the brand from Chaumet.
British designer Paul Andrew, head of all collections at Florentine luxury brand Salvatore Ferragamo since 2019, will leave his role at the business in May. The brand’s in-house team will take over his responsibilities.
Sales at Salvatore Ferragamo fell by 20% in the fourth quarter, broadly in line with expectations, as new lockdowns in Europe to fight a resurgence of COVID-19 more than offset a strong rebound in China.
Not many creators begin collections after reading proper works of psychoanalysis, but Paul Andrew did this summer, and the result was a powerful statement of modern fashion for the house of Salvatore Ferragamo.
The Florentine house updated the classic summer wardrobe at Milan Fashion Week on Saturday, presenting a discreetly luxurious collection with a good dose of leather, and channelling a sportier, more informal vibe.
