The fashion house announced via an official press release the end of his collaboration with his artistic director.
Two years of collaboration.
Barely two years after arriving at the head of the Courrèges creative team, the German designer changed course. According to the information disseminated by the House, this is a "mutual decision".
“At the head of the brand's artistic direction since February 2018, Yolanda Zobel brought her vision, by rethinking the idea of the future for this unique label, known for its avant-garde spirit (…) The stylist will now focus on new creative projects, "said the management of the brand, founded in the 60s.
Yolanda Zobel's latest collection – previously sold by Giorgio Armani, Chloé and Acne Studios – for Courrèges should be presented at the end of the month during Paris Fashion Week. In particular, the designer had made an impression last year by banning plastic from the brand's collections, famous for its use of vinyl material. "The message of this collection is that you have to be active in the present for a better future," she said. It’s our responsibility to get this message across through beauty and fashion. You can't launch something new without saying goodbye to the past. ” The House had unveiled in stride a new, more responsible vinyl, designed with algae.
The name of the successor to the designer should be announced "in the coming months" by Christina Ahlers, Managing Director of Courrèges – owned by Artémis, the holding company of the Pinault family – since January 2018.
