STEP­PING UP

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Runway Report -

Cre­ative direc­tor Frida Gian­nini left Gucci ear­lier than ex­pected and will no longer be tak­ing her fi­nal bow at the Au­tumn/Win­ter ’15 shows. In­stead, her suc­ces­sor, Alessan­dro Michele, will be re­spon­si­ble for all of Gucci’s col­lec­tions and global brand im­age. Michele comes to the job with over 12 years of ex­pe­ri­ence at the Gucci de­sign stu­dio within var­i­ous roles. “Alessan­dro Michele has both the qual­i­ties and the vi­sion nec­es­sary to bring a new con­tem­po­rary per­spec­tive to Gucci and lead the brand into an ex­cit­ing new cre­ative chap­ter of its his­tory,” says François-Henri Pin­ault, chair­man and CEO of Ker­ing. “The Gucci Men’s Au­tumn/Win­ter ’15 col­lec­tion pre­sented on Jan­uary 19, which was re­alised thanks to a re­mark­able col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the men’s de­sign and pro­duc­tion teams, is a clear in­di­ca­tion that the brand is ready to take a new di­rec­tion,” adds Marco Biz­zari, pres­i­dent and CEO of Gucci.
