NO SURPRISE: Versace chief executive Giancarlo di Risio is expected to officially resign today during a morning board meeting scheduled at the company’s Milan headquarters — but it looks like a successor won’t be named right away. Unlike Roberto Cavalli, which has narrowed down its list of candidates for ceo, Versace is still coming up with a short list, according to sources. Among some of the industry’s better known names — including Gian Giacomo Ferraris of Jil Sander, Valentino’s Stefano Sassi and Michele Norsa at Ferragamo — a string of former ceo’s could be in the running. They include Brian Blake, who recently quit Prada; Massimo Macchi, formerly at Ferré and Guess Europe; Marco Franchini, ex-Bally, and Roberto Jorio Fili, who held posts at Calvin Klein, Valentino and Agnona.
