The final of the LVMH emerging designer competition will be held on June 2 at the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris. This year’s jury includes two new names: Kenzo’s creative director Nigo, and Silvia Venturini Fendi.
Patricia Tranvouëz, who was appointed head of Etam in 2019, has announced her departure. She will become president of the Belgian aromatherapy group Inula, which owns brands such as Pranarôm and HerbalGem.
Kenzo, Prada and Ambush are some of the many luxury labels active in the virtual world, whether commercialising NFTs or making significant investments in the metaverse, as Philipp Plein and Gucci did recently.
LVMH, which took full control of the eyewear company in December, has appointed Alessandro Zanardo as its new CEO. Zanardo has worked for eyewear giant Luxottica and has had extensive international experience.
The menswear collections for next winter presented in Milan and Paris signalled a return to a chic, comfortable style, redefining silhouettes by means of textures and proportions, with a focus on outerwear.
This Paris menswear season’s big debut was by Nigo at Kenzo on Sunday morning, and the Japanese cult designer’s first collection for the Japanese-born house was certainly made with finesse and a floral flourish.
