Selfridges is for sale with a formal auction process about to start. It hasn’t been announced by its owners, the Westons, but a news report said Credit Suisse will be canvassing prospective buyers “imminently”.
The fashion trade fair is making its physical comeback in NYC at the end of July, when it will welcome 67 international and domestic companies to its first in-person event since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Florentine trade fairs Uomo, Filati and Bimbo wrapped up on Friday, following what was, according to organisers, a better-than-expected run. For most exhibitors, this physical edition was all about meeting up again.
On Wednesday, the Florentine show opened its 100th edition, hosting nearly 400 exhibitors with a cheerful mood, veined with the attending menswear professionals’ excitement at finally getting together again.
