GFF Gianfranco Ferre
Gianfranco Ferré is considered a minimalist and a modernist, but upon closer inspection of his work, you will see that there are a lot of things going on, seemingly invisible at first glance, but definitely captivating and adding beauty to his work. The subtleness and complexity of his designs add to the mystic of his work. Definitely modern and mystical at the same time. Simple at first glance, complex upon close inspection. It is not about less is more. It is about “more and seemingly less” sums up Gianfranco Ferré’s creations.
During the late 1960s, Laroche sold a large amount of shares in his business to Bernard Cornfeld and to L’Oréal, the hair and beauty product manufacturers. The perfume side of the business then became a division of the L’Oréal beauty company. Licensing deals throughout Europe, Asia, and South America helped maintain a high profile for Guy Laroche products, including intimate apparel, footwear, luggage, sunglasses, and outerwear, while the company itself was later bought by French pen and razor manufacturer, Société Bic. Guy Laroche, the legendary designer, died in 1989, while his company struggled under successive designers, including Michael Klein, Elber Albaz, and Ronald van der Kemp. Albaz, widely credited with rejuvenating the company, left to head up Yves Saint Laurent in 1997. Dutch designer Ronald van der Kemp was hired to succeed Elbaz, but was fired after this first collection was panned by fashion critics. By 1999 Bic announced its intention of selling Guy Laroche, due to falling profits and currency rate fluctuations. After the departure of Albaz, the company lost much of its sheen; subsequent collections were the product of a design team and lacked the élan usually associated with the name Guy Laroche. Yet in 2001 the Guy Laroche name was still alive and well, and Bic had, apparently, decided to hold on to its investment for the foreseeable future.
