Ilan Chetrite is the man behind Sandro’s menswear. The founder’s son, he has worked to grow the label for a decade. As SMCP is about to buy men’s brand De Fursac, he talks to FashionNetwork.com about his menswear vision.
French fashion retail giant SMCP reported Q1 sales up 9% on Monday with a 7.2% currency-neutral rise showing that it has enjoyed “another resilient quarter despite a challenging environment in France.”
Having hit 1 billion euros in revenues and accomplished its objective of 13% growth in 2018, despite a slow-down at the end of the year, 2019 could well be the year that SMCP looks to acquire a new brand.
SMCP has continued its run of impressive results with the owner of the Sandro, Maje and Claudie Pierlot brands saying that it saw double-digit sales growth last year with its turnover above €1bn for the first time.
