A process that saw Ovs as the only buyer. The Bolognese trade unions complain that 25 workers on layoffs and machinery valued at € 1.9 million are not included in the scope of the operation.

Les Copains established itself above all in the seventies and nineties and became known among the young audience for its iconic striped minipulls and cold wool jackets. Since 2019 it has been owned by Super, a company of the Zambellio family. The acquisition, explains the company, “is part of Ovs’ strategy to strengthen its product development and distribution platform, with the aim of expanding the audience of visitors and being ever closer to the different lifestyles of customers”.

The Les Copains collection will be included in one of the group’s brands. A strategy that could follow the one followed for the relaunch of Stefanel through a different positioning of the group’s brands on the different customer segments.
