Donnini joins the British luxury house from Officina Lifestyle where he spent more than five years and before that spent six years at Guess, where he was president of Guess Europe. Before joining Guess he spent 20 years at Max Mara where he was president of worldwide markets.

“We very pleased to have Luca Donnini on board,” said Temperley London founder Alice Temperley. “He brings a very strong background within the industry and has a proven track record in developing luxury brands.

“I am certain that with his experience and talent he will be able to drive the business to the next level.”
