Like in football or in the media, fashion also has its own market and changes must be made to artistic direction at different labels. The latest news is that at 53 years-old, Belgian designer Ann Demeulemeester, has decided to bow out gracefully and leave her eponymous brand to grow without her. Thus far, nobody knows who will replace her. In the same light, Jil Sander, who took back the position of creative director at her own label following Raf Simon’s move to Dior (in 2012), recently announced her departure, due to personal reasons. In the latest news, we learned about the nomination of the 38-year-old American Jeremy Scott as artistic director of Moschino. A real fashion troublemaker, the designer will bring his personal touch to this Italian fashion house, also a supporter of strong images. The one change that caused a real buzz at the end of this year is without a doubt, the departure of Marc Jacobs after 16 years at Louis Vuitton. His last collection, cloaked in black, seemed to predict an imminent exit. Then, after a brief mourning period, it was officially announced that the Frenchman Nicolas Ghesquière (ex-Balenciaga) would take up the torch. Almost 60 years after its closure, the Schiaparelli house rises from the ashes thanks to Diego Della Valle, the new owner who has just named the discrete Marco Zanini, former designer for Rochas, as artistic director. His compatriot, Italian Alessandro Dell’Acqua, takes his place. Chez Loewe, it is the young, talented J.W Anderson who has been chosen to reassert the knowledge of this house, a leather specialist. At Hugo Boss, the American Jason Wu will look after the Boss line. Finally, for Iceberg it is the young Frenchman Alexis Martial who has been called upon to bring a breath of modernity to the label founded in 1974 by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and Guiliana Marchini Gerani.
