Comptoir des Cottoniers Taps Anne Valérie Hash-------
Anne Valérie Hash is the new creative director at Comptoir des Cottoniers, WWD reports. She will fill a gap left in the wake of Amélie Gillier’s departure last November. Hash, having shuttered her well-regarded eponymous line in the face of financial struggles early this year, is the newest hire at Fast Retailing Co. Ltd., the parent company behind the likes of Uniqlo and J Brand (it recently pulled out of talks to acquire J.Crew). Hash is expected to show her first full Comptoir des Cottoniers collection for Fall 2015.
