Maybe I Have Been Watching Too Much Law & Order And CSI

I was reading in WWD today that Prada has separated Jil and Helmut's financial results from the rest of the Prada group. The statement states that Prada is isolating "nonstrategic brands (Jil Sander and Helmut Lang) from the core group with a view to their subsequent disposal."
Wouldn't a Conspiracy Theorist postulate that Prada bought Jil and Helmut (at the time Prada's main competitors) just to run them into the ground? Think about it, with Tom Ford gone from Gucci and Prada now predicting $1.83 billion in sales by 2010, didn't Bertelli come out the big winner? Can't you imagine a "Ripped from the Headlines" L&O with Glen Close as a Fatal Attractionish Jil Sander going murderess on a Dennis Hopper's Patrizio Bertelli.

...sometimes reality is worse than fiction. I think you pointed it out. The brand Jil Sander remained a big nothing without Jil and this is what the Prada gang wanted to happen. If you can't beat them join them, and so did Miuccia. Shame on her!

Sounds like a good plot for a movie. You should start writing the script immediately!

You're probably right. It's common business strategy to buy up competitors; however, usually with the intent on capitalizing on their market share.

So maybe once they feel the competitors were squeezed dry, they decided to dispose of the deadweight.
