FRANCE: Pringle's Waight Keller moves to Chloe
French fashion house Chloé has named ex-Pringle of Scotland designer Clare Waight Keller as its new creative director, replacing Hannah MacGibbon who has held the post for the past two years.
Waight Keller joined British heritage knitwear brand Pringle of Scotland in 2005 and helped transform it into a contemporary and international fashion label. Prior to this she was a senior women's wear designer at Gucci under Tom Ford, and also worked at Ralph Lauren's Purple Label men's line and at Calvin Klein.
"I am thrilled to be joining one of the most prestigious design houses in Paris," she said today (9 May). "Chloé is a brand that conveys a beautiful sense of effortless femininity and vivacious sophistication that I look forward to continuing into the next era."
MacGibbon, who is said to be leaving to pursue new projects, was at Chloe for the past decade. During this time she also worked alongside fellow Britons Phoebe Philo and Stella McCartney at the luxury fashion house.
