BEACH BOYS: The presence at the Just Cavalli show of Antonio Bianchi, owner of Albisetti, may not be unusual, as the Italian innerwear and beachwear manufacturer holds a license with the brand. However, according to sources, Albisetti appears to be finalizing the acquisition of Ittierre SpA, Just Cavalli’s apparel licensee that is under bankruptcy protection.

 

“It’s a fantastic and unique opportunity,” said Bianchi. “I’ve been mulling to buy Ittierre for a very long time.” Bianchi said his 33-year old company, which is based near Como, holds 12 licenses with such brands as John Galliano, Burberry, Chloé and Vivienne Westwood. “Think of the synergies there are and how we can build both companies,” he said.
