As previously reported, Carlyle, the investment fund that controls Golden Goose, is planning to cash out. The valuation of the deal may be boosted by a rumor according to which the brand of distressed sneakers is expanding into women's wear with the help of Frida Giannini, who left as creative director of Gucci five years ago. Her husband, Patrizio di Marco, was made chairman of Golden Goose in September of last year. According to WWD, Golden Goose is targeting Ebitda of around $160 million by 2022 on sales of $510 million, up from a target of $90 million on sales of $300 million this year, even without any diversification or the opening of new stores.
