Emilio Pucci's new chapter will be announced shortly

Massimo Giorgetti’s tenure at Emilio Pucci is coming to a close reports Vogue UK as the departure of the Italian designer behind MSGM, who joined Pucci in 2015 after Peter Dundas’s exit, is imminent.

Giorgetti will leave the LVMH-owned brand effective this month and yet o successor has been named -though considering the number of designers without permanent positions now the Italian house has many options to choose.

“This experience with Emilio Pucci, one of the most representative and historic brands in fashion, was an inspiring journey that has also contributed to my professional growth,” said Giorgetti in a release, adding, “Today, my brand needs more and more of my attention and all my energy.”

“Giorgetti’s two-year stint at Pucci was marked by an experimental take on the Florentine label’s rich history of prints, zingy colours, and resort attire. There were ski suits not unlike those Emilio Pucci designed in the ’60s and seafaring separates meant for the sands of Capri, where the brand opened its first store in 1949. Giorgetti’s brightly coloured designs found favour with the street style set but received mixed reviews at best from critics, who noted that they often missed the mark when it came to Pucci’s signature sportif ease” reports Vogue.

Yet this is not the only change in this week’s fashion bulletin. According to the New York Times Luke and Lucie Meier are the new powercouple in charge of Jil Sander, replacing Rodolfo Paglialunga, who left the company last month.

“Ms. Meier, together with Serge Ruffieux (now the creative director of Carven), led the ready-to-wear and couture studios at Dior under the leadership of Raf Simons, taking over the creative reins after his exit and the arrival of Maria Grazia Chiuri. Previously, Ms. Meier had worked for Marc Jacobs, then the creative director of Louis Vuitton, and Nicolas Ghesquière, then the creative director of Balenciaga. Mr. Meier is a former creative director at the cult streetwear brand Supreme and a founder, in 2015, of the modern urban men’s wear label OAMC. The Meiers’ first collection for Jil Sander will be shown in September in Milan” reports NYT. “Jil Sander, known for its minimalist codes, has undergone enormous creative flux in recent years, with Ms. Sander leaving and returning to the company three times before finally stepping down for good in 2013, to be followed by Mr. Paglialunga”.
