Designers Switching Houses ... Moving to New Brands
I thought it would be helpful to have a thread where we can have an overview of all the recent designer moves because I feel like there have been a lot of changes this season and it's hard to keep up.

Some recent switches I can think of off the top of my head:


Christian Dior
Out: John Galliano --> ?
In: ?


Emanuel Ungaro
Out: Giles Deacon --> Giles (as before)
In: ?


Gianfranco Ferré
Out: Tommaso Aquilando & Roberto Rimondi --> Aquilano.Rimondi (as before)
In: ?


John Galliano
Out: John Galliano --> ?
In: Bill Gaytten


Kenzo
Out: Antonio Marras --> Antonio Marras (as before)
In: Humberto Leon & Carol Lim





Note: This thread isn't for rumors, so only post confirmed information and if possible provide a link to an article

There's also Chloe, out goes Hannah MacGibson, in goes Claire Weight Keller. I'm hoping she can take the house into a better direction than Hannah's camel-tinted 70's nostalgia

I'm really interested in seeing what will continue from Felipe Oliveira Baptista does for Lacoste. I've always loved his clothing from his label, they were always superhuman and futuristic to me. I'd like to see him blend that sensibility with that damn fossil from the dinosaur age.

Is it wrong for me to think that Dior will pull a "Minni Vanilli", on us? In other words, having galliano being the "ghost" designer and someone else being the "face"? Or I'm just too corrupted to have faith in the system?

^ sounds like a great plot for a movie......would be interested to see that actually happen! Either way, for Dior- I don't want to see Marc Jacobs move there and Bill Gayten (amazing technically but conceptually/design-wise, Dior's not really moving forward).

oh my god, fashion scandal of the century! I really do hope this would happen just so I can see the headlines with they found out that John was pulling Gaytten's puppet strings

Guys seriously, it would be the stuff of LEGEND. I mean, Galliano made Dior into the machine that it is! Any suit worth their MBA would probably secretly consider this.

There are some shake up at menswear too. But I can't seem to remember at the moment.

Dunno who's the previous, but this tweet stated April Chrichton is Sonia Rykiel's new creative director.

Here's the details from fashionweekdaily

Quote:
(NEW YORK) Sonia Rykiel has finally found a new creative director in April Crichton. She will take over the duties most recently held by Gabrielle Greiss, who exited the brand in 2009 after less than two years at the house. Since then, the design duties have ben hemed by artistic director Nathalie Rykiel, president of the brand and the founder's daughter, and Sonia Rykiel herself. A native of Scotland, Crichton graduated from Central Saint Martins and worked closely with Madame Rykiel on the lower-priced Sonia by Sonia Rykiel collection.

The French brand's presence in the United States has dimmed lately, following a massive press push surrounding the 2010 launch of Sonia Rykiel Pour H&M. In May of this year, the Sonia Rykiel boutique on Madison Avenue shut its doors. However, now that U.S. PR efforts are being helmed by Lola Rykiel, the 25-year-old daughter of Nathalie, the brand is poised to regain its footing into the American market. Stay tuned.

In related-ish news, Emanuel Ungaro (whose Madison Avenue boutique also shuttered this year; a Michael Kors collection boutique now stands in its place) has informed the Wall Street Journal that the brand plans to forge ahead without a creative director following the recent departure of Giles Deacon. Ungaro's chief executive, Jeffry Aronsson, intends to give creative control to the current team of 35 employees. Ungaro, which has lost all its American department store accounts following a messy succession of creatives (from Esteban Cortazar to Lindsay Lohan to Estrella Archs and, most recently, Deacon) will show in Paris on Monday.
