William Kim is determined to bring salvation to the fashion chain by ensuring it doesn't repeat the mistakes that led to its fall
After almost a year at the helm, Lea's AllSaints salvation rests in the hands of his new chief executive, William Kim. The 40-year old has been tasked with turning the company from a busted flush into a global $1bn (£655m) brand. In the year to January, sales were just £199m.

"Why play a game of football, if you are not going to win," says Kim, undeterred by the scale of the challenge. "Without a doubt, AllSaints will be global and it will be a $1bn business. It has all the constituent parts, it just needs focus. We have 2,400 passionate team members. Now, we have to channel that passion and not dwell on the past. And no, we are not going bust. Quite the opposite actually."

“If you look at it as an analogue fashion brand, that sells some clothes, and has a few stores, you become a fish in a pond. Eventually you will become irrelevant because you are not differentiated”. (Ebrahimi)
