Golden Goose says it is planning to introduce an “emotive customization” concept at a new store that it will open in Milan in January, called Golden Goose Lab, where its craftsmen will adapt existing models to the customers' wishes. Silvio Camapara, chief executive of the Italian brand of distressed sneakers made in Italy, also said at a convention organized by Pambianco that it plans to launch a course in sneaker manufacturing next year. The latest figures given for Golden Goose show a stable Ebitda margin of 32 percent on sales of €180 million in the past year. The U.S. and China lead the foreign market, which now represents 80 percent of the turnover. Founded in 2000, the brand was acquired by the Carlysle private equity fund last year.
