FRANCE: Comptoir des Cotonniers creative director exits
French clothing brand Comptoir des Cotonniers today (19 December) confirmed that creative director Amélie Gillier has left the company.
A spokesperson for the company, which is owned by Japan-based Fast Retailing, said Gillier left the business earlier this week. However, he declined to comment on reasons for the departure and when she will be replaced.
Fast Retailing last month appointed Nancy Pedot as chief executive of its Comptoir des Cotonniers and Princesse tam.tam brands, and group executive officer.
In October, Fast Retailing reported a surge in full-year profit after record sales offset a slight decline in gross margin. Comptoir des Cotonniers, however, fell short of targets by registering a decline in profit for the year.
