Change is a-comin’ to Chanel cosmetics and Ports 1961 as both have made major hires to their creative teams.
First up is Chanel, which hired Lucia Pica for its newly-created global creative makeup and color designer position. Pica is expected to start January 1, though according to Fashionista, it is still not confirmed whether or not she will participate in creating the runway looks for Chanel’s Fall 2015 show come Paris Fashion Week. She will be creating makeup products for the brand, so it will definitely be exciting to see how she brings her perspective to the storied Chanel brand. But don’t hold your breath since her creations won’t hit shelves until 2016.
As for Ports 1961, the label just named Natasa Cagalj as its new creative director. Cagalj is a Lanvin alum and also sat as head of design for Stella McCartney, a position she held for seven years before leaving in 2012. Cagalj will take over for Fiona Cibani, who will ease into her new position as president of Ports NY Inc. Cibani calls the decision to appoint Cagalj a “long-term” one, so we’re interested to see how she transforms the brand.
Clearly, the fashion world has a lot to look forward to in 2015!
