Berluti and Brioni both announce the departure of their respective Artistic Directors on Monday

Feb 2, 2016

Fashion house, Berluti, announced on Monday that its Artistic Director, Alessandro Sartori, is stepping down after working for five years in the male fashion grasps of LVMH.

Alessandro Sartori implemented the first ready-to-wear collection for the Parisien footwear brand, in November 2011. The Fall/Winter 2016 collection presented on January 22, 2016, at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, in Paris, will have been his last for the fashion house of Berluti.

Created in 1895 by Alessandro Berluti in Paris, the fashion house originally specialized in made-to-measure men’s shoes and was headed by four generations of the same family before entering the fold of LVMH, in 1993. 

Meanwhile, on the same day.

Based on mutual agreement, or at least being announced as such, ready-to-wear men's brand Brioni, from Kering, and its Artistic Director, Brendan Mullane, announced that they have parted ways.

Brendan Mullane was the label's first Artistic Director, when it comes to menswear at least, historically classic Italian. He joined the label three and a half years ago after serving as chief menswear designer at Givenchy. He previously also held positions at Hermès, Burberry and Louis Vuitton.
This separation is reportedly a mutual decision, even if, according to our sources, it came as a surprise to more than just one person inside the house.
