Escada wants to push its footwear, its handbags and its other accessories from 6 to 20 percent of its total turnover in five years’ time, says Textilwirtschaft, quoting the new chief executive of the German fashion house, Jean-Marc Loubier, a Frenchman who ran Céline from 2000 to 2005. A dedicated in-house design team is being established for this purpose as part of a comprehensive reorganization package of €35 million that will probably lead to a loss of €25 million for the financial year ending next Oct. 31. For the first half, Escada has reported a net profit of €9.3 million on 3.7 percent higher sales of €344 million.
