For the 180th anniversary of the Woolrich brand, Italy’s WP Lavori in Corso has created a limited edition capsule collection.

MING’S CITY ON THE BAY: Charlotte Russe is opening a creative hub in San Francisco in the spring as part of its strategy to reposition the brand. Opening offices in San Francisco will allow the firm to have a presence in one of the major creative talent markets in the U.S., the company said. Design, merchandising, production, visual, store design, planning and allocation, marketing and e-commerce are among the functions that will be relocated to San Francisco. The company will continue to have a significant presence in San Diego and those offices will continue to support the operations of Charlotte Russe. “Maintaining a presence in both San Francisco and San Diego will help us build our organization and reposition our brand later this year for the benefit of our customers,” said Jenny Ming, chief executive officer. Charlotte Russe was purchased by Advent International in October for $380 million. Advent hired Ming as an operating partner in 2008 and installed her as ceo after completing the deal.
