The LVMH risk continues. If on December 1st the French multinational announced the resignation of Ian Rogers, Chief Digital Officer of the group since 2015, the following day its managerial mosaic changed shape again. And it brings news, above all, in the stylistic context of LVMH reference brand. In other words, Louis Vuitton. In particular, in his men’s leather goods collections. Here, alongside Virgil Abloh, comes Darren Spaziani from Women’s collections. But LVMH risk does not end there.
Spaziani (in the box), an American designer, will soon take care of the men’s leather goods collections for Louis Vuitton. We write “also”, because Spaziani, since 2013, coordinates the same creative direction of the brand, but for women. All this, having already worked for Vuitton between 2004 and 2006. “Darren has brought his creative vision to women’s leather goods – explains executive vice president of the brand, Delphine Arnault to WWD -. He knows how to perfectly infuse modernity by relying on craftsmanship and talented teams”.
Thus, if for Vuitton women’s collections he is interacting with creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, for the Man he will be collaborating with Virgil Abloh. “I am very honoured to be able to explore new creative territories, and look forward to working with Abloh and his team,” Spaziani told wwd.com.
LVMH risk does not end there. The transalpine giant, in fact, has appointed Chris de Lapuente as president and CEO of the Selective Retailing Division. Who, since 2011, has held the same position in another brand of the group: Sephora.
