“Today, Kering announced the appointment of Alexandre de Brettes as chief executive officer of Christopher Kane, effective 1 September. De Brettes’ appointment is the first major hire since Kering took a 51 percent stake in Christopher Kane, in January 2013, betting on the long-term potential of the wunderkind London designer at the heart of the label in what was the first such investment since the luxury group backed Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney in 2001.”
