JAB Holdings has appointed Delphine Ninous as vice president of women's design at its iconic British brand Belstaff.

Ninous, who will oversee the artistic direction of all women's wear collections and the creative development of the women's side of the brand, will join the company on 27 October. Her immediate priority will be to work on the autumn/winter 2015 collection.

She has previously worked at a number of international brands, including Christian Lacroix, Isabel Marant and Comptoir Des Cotonniers, and Diane von Furstenberg.

Newly-appointed Belstaff CEO, Gavin Haig, said Ninous's mix of experience and vision will support the company in its growth ambitions for the women's side of the business.

In July, the portfolio of luxury brands within the Labelux holding structure was integrated into parent group JAB Holdings.
