In the famous words of Heidi Klum, ‘One day you’re in, and the next you’re out!’ But that fortunately isn’t the case for Guillaume Henry who will be moving to Nina Ricci, following rumours earlier this week that the designer was set to leave Carven for the fashion house.
The French designer – who is currently creative director at Carven, where he will remain until the end of November – will be replacing Peter Copping, who is another designer expected to confirm his move to Oscar de la Renta shortly.
Speaking to WWD, owner of Nina Ricci, and President of Puig fashion division Ralph Toledano, told the website that Henry’s “artistic vision, intuition, intelligence, charisma and curiosity” would realise “great ambitions for the brand”.
Henry who has been at Carven for five successful years, has been able to reverse the fortunes of the fashion house, breathing new life into the brand and making it the go-to for nonchalant Parisian style.
Carven’s ‘wonder boy’ will take up his new position on January 5 and is slated to show his first collection for Ricci a month later for autumn/winter 2015.
It seems as if everyone is moving up and on to bigger and better things. Whoever will be next?
