French clothing, perfume and accessories brand Cacharel has appointed Richard Alibert as its new CEO and the company has been re-named Cacharel Paris.

Alibert succeeds Pascal d'Halluin who quit his post at the beginning of November "by mutual agreement."

Alibert currently runs his own company, Aix & Terra, which specialises in food products from the Provence region.

He was previously president and CEO of French children's wear brand Bonpoint, from 2004 to 2008 and European CEO at LMVH-owned women's wear brand, Celine, between 2001 and 2004.

Cacharel has also announced the re-launch of its ready-to-wear range, taking in-house "the design, worldwide distribution and visual communication" of its women's, men's and kidswear lines.

Following the news that it was ending a production and distribution agreement with Italian company Aéffe, Cacharel has announced that it "will collaborate with an industrial French partner for each of its lines." The new partner will be named at a later date.
