Kering's star brand Gucci grew sales by 3.8% in the third quarter, missing analyst expectations, as the pace of recovery from the coronavirus pandemic slowed down sharply following a bumper second quarter.
According to the second Clair Report on retained brand value from resale marketplace Rebag, the strongest handbag labels in 2021 were once again Hermès, Louis Vuitton and Chanel. But Bottega Veneta is hot on their heels.
The executive, who has two decades of experience in the sector, joins the Kering-owned luxury brand from Fendi, where she most recently served as VP for U.S. retail and retail corporate functions in the Americas.
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.
