What?! Dundas was just hitting his stride at Ungaro! I really felt like his collections were starting to come together. He brought some much needed excitement to the label - I'm a bit shocked.

I can't say I'll miss him. Ungaro used to be more romantic, sensual with a touch of the exotic. Dundas' stuff was so vulgar looking, the colors weren't sophisticated, the cuts were stale and there wasn't a hint of romanticism to be seen.

i hope they will find a successor pretty soon, the SS08 season would not be the same without Ungaro...

I completely agree. Hopefully they'll find a replacement who'll match up to his standards; I very much enjoyed his SS07 collection.

this is really boring... when will they stop playing to "la chaise musicale"...
Ungaro is loosing his image... I'm sorry but all those change of head designers is really bothering me... economy is taking way too much part on fashion...

Dundas was wrong for the brand. They should try to nab Roland Mouret.

I can't hide my sadness. I loved Dundas's work for Ungaro. But well, I hope they will replace Peter with someone as good as him or even better...

I think apart from him leaving, what is worst is that the brands identity continues to suffer. With so many people designing for the label, they bring their own look, and yet with another designer gone, it'll take on a new look, which I can't say is a bad thing.

Changing designers is like changing customers and starting over again.
That is never good for business if you do it every 2-3 seasons.
The clothes barely have time in the store or worn by future customers before yet another person is brought in to revamp the look.
Those established company lines which have succeeded have had the faith to give the designer at least 2 yrs before passing judgement (example: Balenciaga, LV, Chloe, Lanvin, Dior).
This is a bad omen for the house and signals internal problems. Most likely management looking for a quick fix. They couldn't retain Gianbattista Valli either; I suspect they will most likely face shutting down some divisions because of it.
Corporate greed in fashion is repulsive and is destroying fashion; it deserves its own thread.
I would like to see a return to more independence among designers presenting intimate showroom presentations and less fashion show drama for magazine fodder for one.
Beware the lure of the corporate vulture...

Does anybody know what are Peter Dundas plans ? Is he going to work for another label or creating a line under his name ? I saw many things about Ungaro here but nothing about Dundas future. I'm really eager to know...and to see

This is good for Ungaro , lately the brand was more Cavalli than Ungaro..there was somthing vulgar about it.... I feel the only one who did understand the spirit & vitality of Ungaro was G.Valli.
