A new head of menswear is appointed for Nicole Farhi and Farhi
by Nicole Farhi collections. Massimo Nicosia will look after both collections. Nicole Farhi will be presenting his first menswear collection for the brand during Milan Fashion Week in January 2011.
Nicosia previously headed the menswear collections Pringle of Scotland and Alessandro Dell’Acqua. Menswear continues to be a big part of Nicole Farhi. “Massimo’s appointment and our return to Milan reinforce our commitment to our menswear collections,” said Niki Scordi, CEO of Nicole Farhi.
Private equity firm OpenGate Capital bought Nicole Farhi earlier this year for nearly £5m from French Connection. Nicole Farhi was founded in 1982 by French Connection chairman Stephan Marks and former partner Nicole Farhi.
