Sergio Tacchini Changes Owners, Names Dao-Yi Chow Global Creative Director

Sergio Tacchini wants to get reacquainted.
The Italian sportswear brand has changed hands and named Dao-Yi Chow of Public School as its global creative director.
Tacchini, which was founded by the Italian tennis star of the same name in 1966, is now owned by Stefano Maroni, an entrepreneur and chief executive officer of licensing firm GMI USA, along with private equity firm Twin Lakes Capital and B. Riley Principal Investments. Terms of the deal, which closed today after some seven months of negotiations, were not disclosed.
After filing for bankruptcy in 2007, the brand was sold to Hong Kong financier Billy Ngok in 2008. In 2013, Ngok formed a partnership for the brand with Wintex Hong Kong, through Wintex Italia, and sold the U.S. license to Maroni and GMI USA in December 2018.
Earlier this year, Maroni opened a pop-up with record producer and executive Chris Ivery to relaunch Sergio Tacchini in the U.S. and Canada under the name STLA. In addition to a core collection of tracksuits, polos and sweatshirts, which Maroni said had a “very positive” reaction, the brand also created capsule collections with Stampd and Barbie, the latter of which is still available online. There were also collaborations with Band of

Good Owner’s Clock Guide

Good Owner’s Clock Guide

Are you the owner of an antique or collectable clock, or are you likely to become an owner in the foreseeable future? If so, the ‘Good Owner’s Clock Guide and Clock Logbook’, consisting of two books packaged as one, gives guidance on all aspects of the safe operation, care and custodianship of domestic clocks and will provide an invaluable record.’The Good Owner’s Clock Guide’ gives the reader all the necessary information to enable him or her to make an accurate assessment of a clock’s originality, condition and quality. Advice is given on restoration and repairers/restorers and there are useful tips on buying and selling clocks and initial pointers for research into the clock’s maker and its overall history. As Eliot Isaacs says in his foreword, the average owner or collector, whilst appreciating a clock’s artistic beauty and its value, ‘often has insufficient knowledge to know when maintenance is required or to recognize when simple changes have been made, let alone be able to describe any repairs or other alterations in sufficient detail to be of help to future owners. This book sets out to be of help to remedy this state of affairs, and is long overdue’.’The Good Owner’s Clock Logbook’ will provide a full and permanent record of all aspects of a clock for all eventualities. It will prove invaluable for the owner for a wide diversity of purposes ranging from verification of provenance to information for insurance purposes, and will also be of great benefit if the clock is sold.’The Good Owner’s Clock Guide and Clock Logbook’ is unique in its presentation and format and is destined to become the clock owner’s bible.

Dolly Parton To Adopt Abandoned Dog Named For Her If Owners Don’t Come Forward

Country music legend Dolly Parton has offered to adopt a dog that was found abandoned at the Glastonbury Music Festival last week.

The white lurcher, described by the shelter caring for it as a “sweet-natured older lady,” was nicknamed Dolly after the singer, who drew rave reviews for her set during the festival’s final day.

“I had my manager call the Happy Landings animal shelter to make sure the dog is being treated and cared for properly,” Parton said in a statement quoted by the Guardian. “At this time, nobody has claimed the dog and the dog is in great hands at the shelter. I will take her home to America if nobody claims her within a reasonable amount of time.”

Dolly the dog was found with food and water inside a tent that was among 30 or 40 other abandoned tents. While the festival ended on June 29, the dog wasn’t discovered until workers cleaning up the area reached the tents on July 1.

“Loyal to the end she stayed in the tent, even though unzipped, waiting for her owner,” Happy Landings wrote on Facebook. “She was very thirsty and extremely stressed and it has taken her until today to properly relax and be able to sleep. How could anyone abandon this gentle soul?”

The shelter is treating the pooch for an ear infection and dermatitis.

But while Dolly is now guaranteed a home, many other animals are not. If you’re looking for a perfect animal companion, a shelter near you can help. In the United States, try Petfinder, Adopt-A-Pet or the ASPCA.
