Christopher Kane’s First Big Hire


A look from Christopher Kane's Resort '14 CollectionAfter being acquired by Kering last January, Christopher Kane has made its first big hire, naming Alexandre de Brettes—formerly Kering’s director of financial communications and market intelligence—as its CEO. De Brettes will officially step into his new role on September 1. “We are delighted that Alexandre is joining our company,” offered Christopher and Tammy Kane. “Together, we will focus on organic global growth and protecting and nurturing the creative DNA of our business,” added the brother-sister team, who, after running their London-based label independently for six and a half years, sold a 51 percent stake to Kering so they could focus on the creative side and expand the brand. Back in January, Kane told us, “We all want to conquer the world. And the world is our oyster with [Kering].”
