Salvatore Ferragamo has announced that Fulvio Rigoni is the brand’s new creative director of womenswear.
According to an article on WWD, Salvatore Ferragamo announced that a Fulvio Rigoni will be the brand’s new creative director of womenswear, replacing Paul Andrew. Rigoni has, however, already shown his debut collection for the brand.
Earlier this year in March, Massimiliano Giornetti resigned as creative director of Salvatore Ferragamo. Since then, the brand decided to hire creative directors for each line including menswear, womenswear, and accessories.
Later in August, the brand hired CEO Eraldo Poletto who has been busy revamping the Italian luxury brand. Andrew was then hired as design director for women’s shoes in September.
At the show for the brand’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection during Milan Fashion Week in September, the brand announced it was the work of Rigoni. It was then that the brand announced that Rigoni was now its womenswear design director.
Rigoni has, however, now replaced Andrew as of Tuesday’s announcement. Rigoni will no longer be the design director of women’s shoes but will be the creative director of womenswear. This includes both shoes and ready to wear.
Rigoni showed his debut collection after three years working for Dior. He began working at the French luxury brand while Raf Simons was still there. Simons being someone Rigoni worked with for six years at Jil Sanders.
Along with the announcement Polleto says the brand will be working more on leather goods and footwear.
While the brand has found a new creative director for its womenswear collections, there has still been no announcement on who will replace Giornetti in menswear.
