It seems to be the week to announce new creative talents. First we broke the news that John Galliano is making his return to fashion via French design house Masion Martin Margiela; then, Nina Ricci named Guillaume Henry as its new creative director. And it seems good things really do come in three: Lorenzo Serafini has just been named the creative director of Philosophy.
Beginning his career as lead womenswear designer at Roberto Cavalli, and most recently working at at Dolce & Gabbana, Serafini will debut his first collection for Philosophy for the pre-fall 2015-2016 season.
'Philosophy is a positive term defined by deep and stimulating thoughts and ideas,' the designer said in a statement released this afternoon. 'I’m happy to have the opportunity to create a new fashion story exploring my own aesthetic.'
Added Massimo Ferretti, President of Philosophy owner Aeffe S.p.A: 'One of the group’s objectives is to explore the creativity of new talents and it is with this sentiment that we warmly welcome the arrival of Lorenzo Serafini, a designer who will give Philosophy new life.
'With this appointment we are strengthening this journey of creative reorganization of our brands that began several seasons ago. It is a necessary journey that is successfully leading the company into the future.'
