Florence, 12 June 2019 – Il Bisonte announces 100% of the company’s ownership has been transferred from Palamon Capital Partners, a European private equity firm specializing in growth buyout, to Look Holdings Inc., listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
After the openings in 2018 of its first two company-owned stores in Asia, Il Bisonte continues to expand and consolidate its presence in Hong Kong with two new store openings: a new store on June 10th in the Harbour City Mall and a pop-up store on June 15th at Sogo Mall.
From May 23-26, Il Bisonte will take part in the 87th edition of Piazza di Siena, the rich program of events accompanying the Official International Horse Show in Rome (CSIO, Concours Saut International Officiel).
The Il Bisonte Art Talks project turns the brand’s main stores into meeting places where friends of Il Bisonte can enjoy the pleasure of an informal lesson offered by some of the most prestigious historians and art critics around.
With the “Verrocchio” bag, dedicated to one of the Renaissance’s great artists, Il Bisonte continues its ten-year collaboration with the Palazzo Strozzi Foundation, the main exhibition venue in Florence.
