Guillaume Henry will be the new creative director at Nina Ricci. He replaces Peter Copping, who is rumored to announce his appointment at Oscar de la Renta any day now. The 35-year-old designer, best known for revitalizing Carven since 2009, will stay at his post until the end of November.
Ralph Toledano, president of Puig, Nina Ricci’s parent company, told WWD that Henry’s “artistic vision, intuition, intelligence, charisma and curiosity” would translate into “great ambitions for the brand.”
Henry will start at Nina Ricci on January 5, and his first collection will be Fall 2015.
