PPR Buys Brioni

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Interesting article on PPR's acquisitions of Brioni in the Wall Street Journal.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204190704577026011411533018.html

Any thoughts?

will quality be substituted?

I would be sad to see my favourite RTW suit maker take a nose dive in quality. Would hate to see their elegant simplicity compromised in place of fashion forwardness and mass production.

seriously that story almost made me cry. to see such a well respected, classy, meticulously crafted brand and product that has been in family hands since its inception fall prey to takeover due to recession and debt is just so sad.

i really really hope they dont fuck the brand up. i hope they keep its image whole and continue to produce the same high level of tailoring as always.

i hope this does not become RIP brioni. i really really hope. brioni exchance and emporio brioni is the last thing i want to see.

+ 10 to the power of a million.

I really like Gucci and all that stuff, but in smaller rather than larger doses. I really do not want to see Brioni go in the Gucci direction. I hope they still do what they do best, and that is making first class jackets and suits in a nice, elegant, and minimalistic way. If it does change for the worse and we see Brioni's with super high batwings or skinny lapels and god forbid, fusing, I reserve the right to take first dibs on all Brioni suits in my size going second hand frown.gif

They'll close the Italian factories and move it all to China?

Another thing, will probably mean even more Brioni counterfeits. The Chinese sure love to copy anything PPR.

“Brioni boasts top quality craftsmanship and is synonymous with Italian masculine elegance,” Mr. Pinault said in a statement. “We have great ambitions for this fashion house. We will give it access to our expertise and know-how, so that it can write a new page in its history while continuing to preserve its identity.”
