Memo Pad: Tommy on the Road... Mancone Joins Armani...

Tommy Hilfiger's ad campaign is introducing a new theme for spring that will celebrate U.S. cities.


MANCONE JOINS ARMANI: Giorgio Armani SpA has appointed Fabio Mancone director of licensing and communications for the group, confirming a WWD Memo Pad item. In addition to the duties held by his predecessor, Robert Triefus, who left the company last year to join Gucci Group, Mancone will be in charge of Armani’s licensing division. Mancone, 42, is currently senior vice president, European marketing and communications, and general manager, Menswear Luxury Labels, for Polo Ralph Lauren. He will take on his new post by the end of February, most likely in time for Milan Fashion Week. Before joining Ralph Lauren in 2004, Mancone was international general manager for Giorgio Armani Fragrances and Cosmetics, within the Luxury Products division of L’Oréal in Paris, where he also acted as director of image worldwide for Lancôme International and Ralph Lauren International Fragrances. Previously, he had handled international brand and business development at Kraft Foods. He began his career in 1990 at Unilever, where he was international brand manager on various products. — Luisa Zargani
