The next move in fashion's musical chairs has been made – and it's the one we were expecting. Guillaume Henry has today been announced as the new Creative Director at Nina Ricci, following 5 years at the helm at Carven.
The President of Puig fashion division (Ricci's parent company), Ralph Toledano, told WWD of 'great ambitions for the brand', speaking of Henry's 'artistic vision, intuition, intelligence, charisma and curiosity'.
Henry's new role at Nina Ricci is effective from 5 January 2015, with the a/w 2015 collection (showing in February) as the first under his direction.
He replaces Peter Copping, who is rumoured to be in line for the top job at Oscar de la Renta.
Henry finishes his current role at the end of November, and Carven are currently in talks with possible successors.
