Here we go again: every time a creative director leaves its post, Alessandro Micheli is rumored to be among the potential replacements. This time, the position of creative director has opened in Givenchy (LVMH), which has said goodbye to Matthew M. Wiliams, and some believe Gucci’s ex director could replace him. Kim Jones’ name was also mentioned (from Fendi, in photo on the left). The maneuver could effectively bring Michele, given his non-compete agreement with Kering is about to expire. With regards to liked stylists currently out of work, it’s also worth mentioning Riccardo Tisci (in photo in the center). Meanwhile, after the sudden and tragic loss of Renne, Moschino is looking for a new creative director.
A position opens in Givenchy
Even if LVMH isn’t providing the revenue of individual brands, but analysts believe Givenchy isn’t living a very positive moment. Luca Solca believes the brand’s revenue could be below that of 2019. Until a new creative director is selected, the internal creative team will design the collections. Business of Fashion supposes the candidacy of Sarah Burton for after Williams. And yet, it also makes inquiries on Alessandro Michele and Riccardo Tisci.
MF Fashion points out that it’s been nearly a year since Michele and Gucci broke it off, and so the non-compete clause is nearly over. The stylist would then be ready accept any offer, and there are a few. Allegedly, LVMH is among those offering, with Fendi’s proposal being the more interesting one.
If Michele was to go to Fendy, Kim Jones will go elsewhere. To revitalize Givenchy? That’s the assumption made by The Platform, which mentions rumors indicate Julien Dossena, currently with Paco Rabanne, will go to Givenchy.
