Feiberg brings over 35 years of apparel expertise and has built brands at Gillian and AJ Bari. He has served as the CEO of Kay Unger New York for more than 20 years. He is known for his entrepreneurial spirit and collaborative management style. Feinberg said, “I am thrilled and excited about the opportunity to continue building this iconic brand within the contemporary fashion segment of the market.”
The brand was acquired by an investor group comprised of Hilco Global, luxury distributor Madaluxe, and strategic brand licensing expert Earthbound late last year.
Cady Vacarro, creative director, Haute Hippie, said, “I am excited to have Rob join me at such an important and creative time for the Haute Hippie brand.”
Jeffrey Hecktman, chairman & CEO, Hilco Global, said, “With the addition of Rob Feinberg as our new president and Cady Vacarro as creative design director, we are sending a clear signal to the marketplace that Haute Hippie will continue to be a leader in the women's contemporary space.”
Adam Freede, president, Madaluxe and an operating partner on Haute Hippie said, “The brand is well positioned in the marketplace which has really allowed us to attract top retail management and design talent like Rob Feinberg and Cady Vacarro to our team.”
Haute Hippie is headquartered in Manhattan's garment district and has a strong retail presence, selling its collections in over 350 stores in the US. Currently the label is sold in over 50 countries globally and featured in department stores such as Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and Harvey Nichols. Beyonce, Adriana Lima and Blake Lively are just a few of the top style icons that have worn Haute Hippie. (HO)
