CIAO, GRAZIANO: Reed Krakoff, whose namesake collection is just hitting stores, already is going through his first major executive shake-up. Graziano de Boni, who joined the division of Coach Inc. as president last year, will be leaving the company to pursue other interests, WWD has learned. The company declined to comment Tuesday, but sources said a successor will be named imminently. According to sources, de Boni will be staying through mid-November to see through the next sales campaign. Krakoff launched his ready-to-wear and accessories brand during New York Fashion Week in February and the collection was picked up by Saks Fifth Avenue, Colette in Paris and 10 Corso Como in Milan. The brand’s first freestanding boutique, at 831 Madison Avenue in New York, was scheduled to open its doors this week but has been delayed. It is now expected to open on Sept. 7. Stores also are planned for Tokyo and Las Vegas.
