Stefano Citron and Federico Piaggi Depart Gianfranco Ferré-------
Gianfranco Ferré creative directors Stefano Citron and Federico Piaggi announced today they are leaving the company, reports WWD. The duo took the helm in 2011, fresh on the heels of Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi. Pre-Fall 2014 will be Citron and Piaggi’s final collection for the house, and the company confirmed there will not be a Fall ’14 ready-to-wear collection during Milan fashion week next February.
Since the death of Ferré in 2007, the label has faced significant financial and creative struggles. Whoever steps into the role next will no doubt have their work cut out for them.
