Rochas Names Federico Curradi to Head Men’s Fashion

Rochas has named a new creative director for its men’s wear activity, which it put on hold last year after only two seasons.
The Interparfums-owned fashion house said Italian designer Federico Curradi will be charged with bringing “a new attitude” to Rochas men’s wear going forward. The brand is expected to relaunch in January 2019.
“I am sure Rochas can find its own place in the men’s wear industry and Federico has the talent to bring Rochas to a next level,” stated Interparfums Group and Rochas chief executive officer Philippe Benacin.
Curradi, a native of Florence, launched his own men’s wear label, which shows in Milan, in January 2016 at Pitti Uomo. The designer, who lives in the Florentine countryside, is also creative director of outerwear specialist Peuterey. Born in Florence in 1975, after living in New York for several years he moved back to Italy, first working at Ermanno Daelli, then as head of the men’s styling office at Ermanno Scervino and later becoming head of the men’s collection of Roberto Cavalli in 2005. A year later, he began working at Iceberg on the company’s men’s wear as a consultant. He was also Iceberg’s first men’s wear creative director, succeeded by James

Federico Marchetti Wins Entrepreneur of the Year Award in Italy

MILAN – Federico Marchetti, chief executive officer of Yoox Net-a-porter Group, is the winner of the annual Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
The award, which Marchetti received on Thursday evening at the Italian Stock Exchange, recognizes his “original intuition” about the future possibilities of the Web and his creation of Italy’s biggest tech firm, with a market capitalization of more than 3 billion euros, or $ 3.18 billion, at current exchange.
“Anything is possible,” said Marchetti. “I started from scratch and as an outsider in 1999, so I would like to dedicate this award to the younger generation. Italy is a country of innovators and talents, which has given us a great competitive advantage. It’s not a question of capitals, but rather of execution. People are more important than capitals, they are the ones that turn ideas into reality,” said the entrepreneur, who also credited his team for growing the group.
Marchetti spearheaded the merger between Yoox and Net-a-porter in 2015, listing it on the Italian Bourse as YNAP. As reported, a strong performance in all channels and global markets helped YNAP close the first nine months of the year with sales of 1.33 billion million euros, or $ 1.47 billion, up 12.8 percent compared with pro-forma revenues of 1.18

Federico Fellini’s ‘La Dolce Vita’ Getting A Remake Is Proof We’ve Gone Too Far

Clearly the film industry has run out of any and all good, original ideas. Sadly, the unstoppable remake machine is about to touch a cinematic classic.

On Thursday, AMBI Group announced plans to remake Federico Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita.” The company has reached an agreement with the Italian director’s family and estate to make a modern retelling of the 1960 film. The filmmaker’s niece, Francesca Fellini, said in a statement that while the family has been approached about remakes and sequels before, AMBI Group’s Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi changed their minds.

The original “La Dolce Vita” follows Marcello Mastroianni’s gossip journalist over a week traveling through Rome. In a statement, Iervolino said that the contemporary remake of the film will be “every bit as commercial, iconic and award-worthy as the original.” We can’t help but wonder one thing, though: Why?

With nearly every movie being remade, adapted into a musical, reworked for a sequel, revamped for a modern interpretation or rebooted for the small screen, nothing is safe these days. Nope, not even a Palme d’Or-winning, influential Fellini classic. While there are some noteworthy and partially original recreations in the works, like Paul Feig’s all-female “Ghostbusters” and Netflix’s clever take on a “Wet Hot American Summer” prequel – it takes us back to the first day of Camp Firewood – the majority of other remakes are simply unnecessary.

What’s next, a “Citizen Kane” remake? Hey, why don’t we turn Ingmar Bergman’s filmography into a musical web series? What about a reboot of Gus Van Sant’s shot-for-shot “Psycho” remake? Brilliant!
