He was an assistant to Hedi Slimane, not sure which seasons he was with him for (luster, strip?). He has some fans here on tfs that I'm sure will be able to elaborate. His womenswear is quite good and similar to Hedi's aesthetic, a bit more savage than pristine.

I'm really excited about this position, something else to look forward to during Milan fashion week.

ohlala, Nicolas was making hints to me saying that he would have exciting news at hand shortly, but that one I would have never thought about! I am happy for him because it will probably give him the financial support that he'd need for his own line to grow. On the other side, a little further spotlight will certainly not hurt.

I am not entirely sure though what I shall think of Cerruti... it's been down for a couple of years now without direction and me being of younger age, I only remember it as a classic Italian suitmaker that does "tasteful in beige". Ruffo would have probably been the nicest fit, it's sad that the Research project is no longer in existance.

moving very very fast... indeed. Not too sure about this though, but really great a very young designer can take such a demanding role. Hope his up for it and wish him all the best....

I remember discussing with Nicolas what had happened with Helmut's audience and customer base and the concept of modernity... that's always been a topic that we were coming back towards and I feel like it might be something that he could investigate at Cerruti... very much about substantial, no-nonsense basics. That's just a suggestion, however. Nothing I could possibly confirm.
