On Monday, the luxury giant set a new Paris Stock Exchange record by topping a market capitalisation of €250 billion for the first time, its share price having surged by nearly 20% since the start of the year.
In an exclusive interview, Agostino Poletto, general manager of trade show Pitti Immagine, gives FashionNetwork.com an initial assessment of Pitti Connect. The site, launched in July, hosts three virtual exhibitions.
Pitti Immagine has unveiled the website hosting all its trade shows until the end of October, featuring exhibitors’ collections and plenty of content and events, like ‘Sustainable Style’, headlined by Y/Project.
Brunello Cucinelli expects to limit its drop in sales this year caused by the coronavirus crisis to 10% and said it would writedown 30 million euros of unsold garments, which would be donated to humanitarian causes.
