Can Marimekko Go From Cult Design Brand To Fashion Empire? | Co.design | Business + Design

Its fashion identity is a vintage one. This means she can almost, if not completely, start from scratch. (Those famous prints will find their way in men s hairstyles somehow.) She also has the support of Ihamuotila, who possesses the same sort of inner confidence that great merchants do: he believes that good product, against all odds, will win out. Its her job to create it, and his job to message it. But Ihamuotila still has plenty of challenges ahead. The company generated 94 million Euros in sales in 2013, up 6% from 88.5 million in 2012 and 21% from 77.4 million in 2011. But it lost a lot of money in 13–profit loss before taxes was 804,000 Euros (and equalled about a million Euros after taxes)–mostly due to increased expansion efforts, like write-downs on the company-owned stores in Beverly Hills, Boston, and Oslo, which totaled 1.5 million Euros.

But Tuesday saw Giorgio Armani outdo even this old maxim in his celebrity-circus of a couture show. On the front row, a shimmying Kate Hudson mingled with Jared Leto, Sophia Loren pouted sultrily, Pink tapped her foot and Juliette Binoche caught up with fellow actress Chloe Grace Moretz. Ushers even had to link arms in a human wall when the show ended to protect the myriad stars from the masses and deliver them to the safety of backstage. It’s not often that Karl Lagerfeld is outdone in the Hollywood stakes but his front-row shows that he’s focusing his attention on couture-hungry Asia. Here are the highlights from Day 3 of the haute couture fall-winter 2014-15 collections, with show reports for Giorgio Armani Prive, Chanel, Stephane Rolland and Bouchra Jarrar.
