Flore, joined Brioni in November 2014, succeeding Francesco Pesci. Flore handpicked Brioni’s former creative director Justin O'Shea, an appointment that proved to be a major misstep. O'Shea, who had no design experience, abruptly departed the company last October last year, after only six months.

Flore was tasked with overhauling Brioni's product offering, driving international growth and building its reputation in the luxury menswear market. Prior to Brioni, Flore held the role of chief executive officer of Asia-Pacific at Bottega Veneta, another Kering owned brand. He has been with Kering since 2008.
