Giles Deacon has officially confirmed his new post as creative director at Emanuel Ungaro.
“Various things have happened at the house recently which for legal reasons the company can’t comment on – but I like to think of the bigger picture,” Deacon told Vogue UK early this morning.
“The house and its legacy have a lot more to them than that – and there will be announcements over the coming weeks about the business. I can’t talk about them yet but various changes are being put in place.”
The designer–whose odd-but-ladylike ensembles are hugely popular here at Fashionista and elsewhere in the industry–will be bringing ex-girlfriend and current creative collaborator Katie Grand on as a consultant.
Deacon will show his first collection for Ungaro this coming October in Paris. Bonne chance!
