After a couple of seasons of a rumored rocky relationship between Chloé and it's now past creative director Hannah MacGibbon, it was announced on Twitter this morning that the two would be parting ways.
This news is not shocking since it has been in the rumor mill for a while, but leaves a lot of fashion insiders perplexed and disappointed. Since Hannah was appointed Creative Director in 2008, the brand has managed to turn out collections that were at the top of Paris fashion week, standing right up there with her predecessors Stella McCartney and Phoebe Philo.
Although talks are not in the works yet if Hannah MacGibbon will start her own line, many like myself are hoping that this is her next step. She worked for Chloé for the last 10 years and in this time, has done nothing but bring the brand up.
Clare Waight Keller, who left Pringle of Scotland this year, will become creative director of Chloé on June 1.
