Best of 2014 : The Fashion Transfers of the Year

Fashion constantly needs renewing and each year it brings new surprises with the arrival of new names to the head of the fashion houses. The buzz at the start of 2014 was without contest the arrival of Nicolas Ghesquière as the creative director at Louis Vuitton. The new energy that he brings makes him without doubt THE designer of the year. And it’s from leaving the studios of Louis Vuitton and by arriving at Sonia Rykiel that Julie de Libran is becoming the talked about name especially after a very successful first show in the heart of St Germain des Près in Paris. Another note worthy arrival, was David Koma at Mugler, the young English designer, who puts the sensual woman back to the heart of the collection. In Milan, Rodolfo Paglialunga, also succeeded with his first show as creative director at Jil Sander, by renewing the codes of the house. Finally to note, the launch of the second line of Giambattista Valli in Milan, full of romance and freshness, re-named quite simply Giamba. The year 2014 was also marked by the grand departures which were very moving: the last ready to wear line for Jean-Paul Gaultier after 38 years of design. The couturier from now on is going to concentrate solely on haute couture and on other personal projects. Marco Zannini leaves Schiaparelli after just one year as artistic director. The year ends with movement in quite a few of the French houses with the departure of Christophe Lemaire from Hermès after 4 years as creative director. A surprise at Carven with the departure of Guillaume Henry who triumphed with the successful renaissance of the house. He goes to Nina Ricci, after Peter Copping left the house to take artistic direction at Oscar de la Renta. The great American couturier wanted to choose his successor before he passed away at the end of October at the age of 82. The luxury world also turned a page with the departure of Yves Carcelle, who was the much respected head of Louis Vuitton for 22 years. Interviews: David Koma: This house was the iconic house that I loved since I was a little baby, since I was 13 I was admiring this incredible house, and to be part of it, to be artistic director for such an amazing French house it means a lot to me.Jean-Paul Gaultier: It’s not the end, it’s the start of other things, and I think it’s really good that I’m stopping, as it’s the young’s turn.Christophe Lemaire: The last season but it’s done with serenity, with feelings of a kind of accomplishment, there isn’t any bitterness, from either side.Free Music / Bandit & Nikit
