The former CEO of Conforama joined Maus Frères, owner of Lacoste, The Kooples and Aigle, in January 2020, to oversee department store chain Manor, and has now been appointed the Swiss group's deputy CEO.
The Swiss group, which bought The Kooples in 2019, has announced its name change to MF Brands Group as it published its results for the 2019 financial year, in which it recorded a 15% revenue growth over 2018.
The Swiss group finalised the acquisition of the Elicha brothers’ label last May. FashionNetwork.com’s partner Retviews has analysed the product range on its site, comparing it to its accessible luxury competitors.
Following the French competition authority's approval of the group's acquisition of The Kooples, Thierry Guibert of Maus Frères, owner of Lacoste, Gant and Aigle, has confided the brand to Aigle's CEO.
