Andrea Cannelloni, vice president and general manager of Napapijri, told reporters in Milan earlier this month that the brand's sales should reach a level of about €140 million for this full year. Owned by VF Corporation, Napapijri enjoyed double-digit sales growth last year, but the company predicts that it will expand even faster this year, partly due to store openings. It has about 100 mono-brand points of sale around Europe and intends to open 10 to 15 others per year in the coming years. The company's retail investments are going to be particularly intense this year, with 10 store openings scheduled in Italy alone.
