SAINT LAURENT IS GAINING ON GUCCI, AS ALESSANDRO MICHELE'S METEORIC BRAND GROWTH SLOWS

Gucci's maximalist juggernaut is showing signs of slowing. In Kering’s 2019 first quarter report, sales rose 20 per cent on a comparable basis. Although Alessandro Michele’s maximalist vision still makes up almost three quarters of the conglomerate’s profit, the numbers pale in comparison to previous quarters, where Gucci has consistently topped 35 per cent growth. In 2018, it topped €8 billion in sales with 36.9 per cent growth.

Kering shares dropped as much as 7.6 per cent in Paris trading as the group's revenue narrowly beat analysts’ estimates, but chief financial officer Jean-Marc Duplaix showed no signs of concern. “We’re in a phase of normalisation," he commented, before adding, “I’m very comfortable with Gucci’s trajectory” of Kering’s all-star earner. Indeed, just when fashion assumes Michele has reached his zenith, he veers off into a new fantastical direction that delights his audience.

At the time of his hiring, Guyon, a French graduate of the École de la Chambre Syndicale​ de la Couture Parisienne who had previously worked at Valentino alongside Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri, said, “Elsa Schiaparelli is an enchanting couture house. I have always been fascinated by its exceptional legacy, its luminous and intimate story, its quirky and poetic world, [and] its ultimate chic and endless creativity.”
