The CEO of Italian down jacket brand Moncler, Remo Ruffini, has broadened his involvement in high-end fashion, after buying a 49% stake in Italian womenswear label Attico via the Archive company.
Archive announced the acquisition in a press release issued on October 8. The operation, as indicated in the press release, “is fully consistent with the diversification strategy of Archive, whose mission is to invest in ready-to-wear fashion, as well as in the food and hotel industries.”
Archive is an independent company managed by Stefano Marcovaldi and wholly owned by Ruffini Partecipazioni Holding, a holding company whose president is none other than Remo Ruffini.
Attico was created in February 2016 by young Italian designers Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini. Its style is vintage-inspired, rich in decorations and colour. Attico sells notably via the Mytheresa, Net-a-porter, Matchesfashion and Farfetch e-tail sites.
