What do you think? Former Dolce & Gabbana CEO know at Lands End?
I read that Lands End has a new CEO and it's former Dolce & Gabbana CEO Frederica Marchionni. I'm not sure what to make of it. Somehow, I can't wrap my head around Lands End and Dolce & Gabbana in the same plane of existence. Lands End has been my go to place, certainly for kids attire. Their boys clothes are indestructible as witnessed by the fact that I got kids kids worth of wear out of several items. It's also a great place to get girls clothes that are not totally frumpy and yet not midriff and bottom bareing, especially for girls in the 10 to 11 year range who are very tall. My husband loves their stuff too. I buy hard working basics from them and have for years. I worry that this is now going to try and move them into the "fashion" market all that goes with it. It's not like we haven't seen that happen before. I've included some links about the change below. What do you think?
