Vince names Creative Director

Ex-Philosophy designer takes top spot

Natalie Ratabesi has been named womenswear Creative Director of LA-based fashion brand Vince.

On Monday, ELLE reported that 35-year-old Ratabesi had stepped down from her role as Creative Director at Philosophy – and now we know why.

Vince is known for its low-key, modern aesthetic and core collection of luxe staple pieces, so it seems that Ratabesi is the perfect fit for the brand; 'There's something about being understated, and something not too over the top… If you feel comfortable in your clothes, you're more confident as a woman', Ratabesi told WWD.

We can't wait to see where this Central Saint Martins graduate drives the brand. Ratabesi's first designs from her new seat will form the pre-fall 2015 collection, so watch this space.
