This we know: 1 week ago Emanuel Ungaro’s chief designer Estrella Archs left the luxury house sighting “irreconcilable differences”, which no doubt have to deal with the flop that was the Spring 10 collection when Lindsey Lohan was the brand’s artistic director (Lindsanity only lasted that 1 season while Archs lasted 2).
Then a few days ago, Franck Boclet, Ungaro’s menswear designer left the company after 3 years.
And around the same time in Paris, Ungaro management was spotted having lunch with Giles Deason..
AND NOW we hear via tweet from JCReport editor Jason Campbell that “It’s official Giles Deacon is in at Ungaro.” Other sources have yet to confirm. Will Giles turn around Ungaro? Things can only go up from here.
