^ well, he was the one who hired LiLo anyway. gotta pay for the
consequences, eh? i guess he never saw it coming though, the fiasco
she was bound to create for Ungaro. how embarrasing.

That's probably the only smart thing he's done since landing at Ungaro.

Oh boy. Now all they need to do is get Dina Lohan (maybe she could open FW show?) and they'll be on their way to recovery.

no ceo, no buzz, and barely a buyer in sight. sounds like the house of ungaro's ripe for a takeover.

Something is changing at Ungaro; the higher-ups at the French maison are searching for a creative director that will add a new lustre to the label. Last Friday, the brand's owner, Asim Abdullah, met with Giles Deacon at the restaurant of the Le Relais Plaza, not far from the legendary headquarters of the fashion house, in Avenue Montaigne. The encounter between the company chairman and the 40 year-old English designer, comes at a rather unstable moment for the label. After ending the collaboration with Giambattista Valli in 2005, and the harsh critiques received for the spring-summer 2010 collection designed by Lindsay Lohan and Estrella Arch, Abdullah confirmed the creative divorce between Ungaro and the American actress last February.

Deacon, that's all it needed! Abdullah choices are so funny.

I've been told that Asim wants Giambattista to return to the house, I don't think that will happen since Valli left Ungaro to focus in his own brand, but who knows.

^ Yeah, plus, he apparently turned down being heir of Valentino for the same reason.
Giles Deacon is a strange choice..

whoever gets the role next should sign a long term contract that pays out loads should the management capriciously change their mind again...

(valli for valentino would've been magical)

Abdullah even offered an ex-Valentino shareholder to buy 75% of Ungaro. How desperate.

Valli was offered the position yes, but he is smart enough to know not to get involved in sticky things like this. Im not sure I want him there anyway, then again anyone will do right now.
