Athleisure is now taking on accessories

Marc Jacobs has a new CEO
On Tuesday, LVMH announced that Eric Marechalle will leave Kenzo to join Marc Jacobs International as chief executive officer in the third quarter of the year. WWD reports that the American fashion company's current CEO, Sebastian Suhl, will leave LVMH "to pursue personal interests" — a move that was speculated as early as this past May. Under Marechalle's watch, Kenzo grew to become one of the most closely-watched (and most experimental) European labels, with projects that included a high-profile collaboration with H&M. Perhaps we can expect for him to give Marc Jacobs the same treatment? {WWD}
