Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) Alberto Lavia has only helmed Façonnable for six months, but he’s wasted no time in appointing a new team of international executives. After the announcement of Eric Wright as the brand’s artistic director, Lavia has named a vice president of wholesale and retail, an administrative and financial director, and a director of international communication. Jean-Emmanuel Bourguet, the company’s new VP of wholesale and retail, comes most recently from a ten-year stint at Chloé, while the new administrative and financial director, Patrizia De Santis, spent time at both Bulgari in Rome and Asprey in London. Frencesca Traldi, the director of internal communication, has worked at GFT USA, Loro Piana in Milan, and most recently within the Kellwood Group in New York. In addition to these appointments, Lavia has named Bob Green the new president of Façonnable USA, and Mikel Folcarelli as the worldwide visual identity manager.
