Salvatore Ferragamo has finally found a new men’s ready-to-wear design director
Salvatore Ferragamo was caught up in the designer shake-up that befell a number of fashion houses earlier this year when Massimiliano Giornetti left his position as the brand’s creative director back in March.
It only took half a year, but Salvatore Ferragamo has finally found Giorgetti’s replacement in Guillaume Meilland, a former senior designer in Lanvin. Previously, Meilland has worked for Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent in the past.
Meilland will join Fulvio Rigoni and Paul Andrew, who have been appointed design director for women’s wear and footwear respectively.
“I am thrilled to be able to work for a brand as prestigious as Salvatore Ferragamo and with such an important history,” Meilland says in a statement. “This is a momentous challenge and I plan to draw on the brand’s history and heritage to create modern men’s collections that look to the future.”
His first collection for Salvatore Ferragamo will make its debut in January.
