Emilio Pucci has big plans for the United States.

The Italian luxury label announced this week they will be increase their presence in the US by opening in-store boutiques at Saks Fifth Avenue.

CEO Alessandra Carra said of the move:

"The U.S. market is excellent for Pucci, one of the markets that is growing the most, as it showed 20 percent gains year-to-date. We didn’t used to have shop-in-shops in department stores, as it was a conscious decision in the past to focus on building our boutiques, but we thought that with Saks, it was the right moment to change our strategy."

Carra added they'll be setting up even more in-store boutiques at other department stores as well.

Good luck.

american-apparel-inks-department-store-deals-in-europe.jpg

Because business is all rainbows and unicorns here in the States, American Apparel is expanding to highbrow department store in Europe.

American Apparel and highbrow? Those are two words that don't belong in the same sentence!

UK department store Selfridges plans to carry the overpriced generic clothing at six more stores in the next year and France's Galeries Lafayette is expected to do the same.

There's also a rumor that Bloomingdale's in the US will carry AA as well, but the deal has yet to be finalized.

As for why they're going the department store route, sources say it's "a way for the company to expand its business without spending a lot of capital".

Think it'll work???
