France's Carven names new creative director

Wed 18th January, 2017 4:13pm
PARIS, Jan 18 (Reuters) - French fashion brand Carven said 
on Wednesday it named Serge Ruffieux as its new creative 
director, effective Feb 1. 
     The 42 year-old Ruffieux will oversee all women 
ready-to-wear and accessories lines, with his first collection 
taking place this spring, the statement said. 
    Ruffieux and partner, Lucie Meier, led Dior's  DIOR.PA  
women collections design team after the departure of creative 
director Raf Simons in October 2015 and before the arrival of 
Maria Grazia Chiuri in July 2016. 
    Ruffieux replaces designers Alexis Martial and Adrien 
Caillaudaud, who left Carven in October 2016, just 18 months 
after their nominations. 
    They had succeeded Guillaume Henry who himself left Carven 
to lead Nina Ricci in 2015, having revamped the brand's sleepy 
image in his five years in charge. 
    Carven, which was bought out in May 2016 by Hong-Kong-based  
Bluebell luxury group, halted its men's line in July 2016.
