Golden Goose, best known for its Superstar sneaker, said it was acquiring its main supplier, Italian Fashion Team, in a strategic step for the company.
“Golden’s artisanal tradition is reflected in the warmth of a handmade object,” said Golden Goose CEO Silvio Campara. “Each of our products tells a unique story of excellence, made by extraordinary people and responsible processes. As we continue this beautiful journey, we want partners that will share our values of care, authenticity and quality.”
Golden Goose acquired IFT from its founder and CEO Michele Zonno and his family. Founded in 2007, IFT specializes in the design, production and distribution of high-end footwear for some of the most established Italian luxury brands. IFT and Golden Goose have worked together for seven years.
