November 19, 2012 § Leave a comment
After the shocking news of Nicolas Ghesquière leaving Balenciaga, rumours sprung that Christopher Kane will be taking the creative director’s place. While this hasn’t been confirmed yet, the pot continues to stir as the Scottish designer is now parting ways with Donatella Versace’s line Versus.
The house of Versace announced the news today, also stating that Donatella Versace will regain creative control of the brand. Style.com writes:
Rather than remain a traditional fashion collection shown on the runway in Milan, it will transition to become a series of capsules and limited-editions, shown during special events wherever and whenever the spirit may strike. The first will take place in New York this Spring. An e-commerce store for Versus is also in the offing for next year.
The designer said today in a statement that, “the time has come to dedicate all my focus to the future of the Christopher Kane label.” Kane has been the creative director for Versus since 2009.
