Although they seemed to have been doing just fine without a Commander in Chief for the past two years, Prada has gone and hired themselves a new a president and chief operating officer for its U.S. division.  Graziano de Boni, formerly of Valentino USA, will make his debut with Prada July 1st, and, considering their profits have been up 65.8% in the last two years, he better not screw anything up.
