In an interview he gave to Forbes Japan, Mr Bizzari said there was something special about the Japanese market that makes Gucci particularly suited to it.
He expressed the view that Japanese consumers place a high level on high-quality, traditional products, but that younger consumers in particular want fashionable products. But he said he saw no conflict between these two requirements, legacy and fashionability.
He said that to have products that preserved traditional qualities and crafts.
