Peter Copping Is Leaving Oscar de la Renta - Allure Magazine (blog)
Peter Copping, the creative director at Oscar de la Renta, is leaving the company after less than two years on the job. The news was confirmed Wednesday afternoon by Alex Bolen, the chief executive of the company (and de la Renta's son-in-law). "After almost two years at Oscar de la Renta, personal circumstances require me to return to Europe. I have loved my time in New York where I hope to return at some point in the future," the designer said in a statement. This month, Maria Grazia Chiuri left Valentino to head to Dior. In April, Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli announced their departure from Calvin Klein, with rumors circulating that Raf Simons will take over the brand. Hedi Slimane confirmed his exit from Yves Saint Laurent in the same month, while the past year saw changes at Gucci, Balenciaga, and Lanvin. Earlier today, Louis Vuitton released a statement denying the departure of its current artistic director, Nicolas Ghesquière. Copping, who was handpicked by de la Renta, joined the brand in October 2014. His debut collection was a success that honored de la Renta and the fashion house he inherited. No successor has been named, though speculation has already turned to Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, the founders and designers of up-and-coming label Monse, according to The New York Times. The pair, who are consulting for Carolina Herrera, worked for de la Renta before Copping took the top position. "Our team will continue to work on next season's collection with a keen focus on the level of sophistication and craftsmanship that are the hallmarks of our house," Bolen said.www.allure.com
Is Raf Simons taking over at Calvin Klein? - The Sun Daily
But rumours are rife that he could be about to make a major comeback at the helm of Calvin Klein. The Belgian designer left Dior last fall after three years of overseeing the womenswear creations for the prestigious French fashion house, citing the need to redress his work-life balance. "It's a decision founded on one hand by my desire to concentrate on other centres of interest in my life, notably my own label, as well as the passions that motivate me beyond my professional activities," he said at the time. His gaping absence at the house was finally remedied last week, when the house revealed that Valentino Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri will be stepping into his shoes. The all-American classic brand has apparently been sitting on the news of a new star designer since April, following the revelation that it was parting ways with Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli, the respective heads of its womenswear and... This move, however, was precipitated by the brand as part of its new strategy to unify the two entities. A statement from Calvin Klein at the time read: "A new brand direction will ultimately follow one creative vision across all categories of the business. The industry certainly suspects so, pointing out the ease with which his modern and elegant approach could be used to revive the iconic US label. Klein himself fanned the flames during a radio interview on Sirius XM when, as reported, he said of the brand: "They won't announce [who it is] publicly because it's under contract. " WWD reports that an official announcement is widely excepted this August at the latest, and with the Spring/Summer 2017 shows starting up in September, the race is on. — AFP Relaxnews.www.thesundaily.my
Ciao, Italo: Alexander Fury Considers Italo Zucchelli's Legacy as He Exits Calvin Klein Collection - Vogue.com
Whatever he designed, and however long he stayed, Italo Zucchelli was going down in the history books at Calvin Klein —likewise Francisco Costa, his womenswear counterpart—because they were the first designers to helm the Klein label bar... He created intricately worked garments that appealed, subtly, to shifting tastes in sexuality and decoration and the rise in demand for clothes that defined luxury in fabric and construction. But, for me, it was the Klein forged by Italo Zucchelli that proved most potent and emphatic. Maybe that’s because Klein’s breed of masculinity has always been eye-popping—like the 1982 Bruce Weber shots of pole-vaulter Tom Hintnaus, shot from below like a Greek god (appropriate, for an Olympic athlete) clad only in his Calvin Klein... It was man as sex object, in a postfeminist, post-gay liberation world—and Klein claimed him as his own. Klein’s vision was so intrinsically tied with male sexuality that, when the designer launched a complementary line for women in 1984, it was based on the men’s, with vestigial fly-front still intact. Italo Zucchelli’s first recollection of Klein was that billboard, as a teenager (he was born in 1965) growing up in La Spezia in northwest Italy. “You had a man, in his underwear, on a billboard in 1982. . . Now it’s everywhere. There is always this element, of the masculinity, of the sexuality, expressed in different ways. It’s part of the language of Calvin Klein. Zucchelli’s Calvin Klein is notable—and will always be memorable—for the way he played with that same sense of masculinity and sexuality. It wound up looking unlike anything else in fashion—certainly unlike anything else in Milan. another, anatomically re-engineered, flesh-colored performance sports gear, as if the models were clad, Silence of the Lambs style, in suits made of skin. These were man suits (albeit not made of real men), transforming the skinny kids Zucchelli cast each season into godlike Klein boys. Zucchelli’s final men’s collection for Fall was inspired, in part, by the Anne Hollander book Sex and Suits, where Hollander makes a compelling argument for suits as the ultimate expression of male power, and eroticism. Hence the fact Zucchelli brought his tailoring skills to the fore to re-engineer not just fabric, but the body of his men (and, for the first time, women). Zucchelli invariably described it as “American”—which he has an oddly developed understanding of, given that he’s an Italian. Designers who inherit labels from house founders are often tasked with establishing “codes,” those hallmarks and decorative devices design labels are obsessed with nailing to ensure their continuance in perpetuity (and, indeed, in absentia). But Klein’s codes were already well established, and world famous—Klein’s advertising was seen farther and probably packed more of a punch than his clothing ever did. So Zucchelli was allowed to play with the codes of Calvin, to experiment and.www.vogue.com
