In this view, the new account is strategic for our digital growth and to create a direct connection with the Chinese consumer. Our goal is to further introduce the Richard Ginori soul also in China, and we are certain that the opening of the account will help improve the dialogue and make the brand experience more enveloping and exciting. WeChat is, in fact, a direct and modern channel that allows us to offer a dynamic and interactive tool that puts access to our entire collection at the click of a fingertip."
