Renzo Rosso, Chairman and founder of OTB (Only the Brave)

Renzo Rosso, Chairman and founder of OTB (Only the Brave)


By Miss Tweed
Renzo Rosso, the charismatic founder of Diesel jeans, thinks big for both his businesses and Italy in general. He told the Financial Times last week that he was on the lookout for more acquisitions after buying Jil Sander in 2021 and investing in Amiri in 2019. Rosso aims to build a major Italian fashion and luxury group to rival France’s LVMH and Kering. Of course, he never mentions the French groups by name. He just means that Italy is as capable as France of building successful fashion and luxury groups. This ambition is hardly new. Everyone in Italy wants a champion but no-one wants to build it.
