In an official statement issued a few minutes ago, Blumarine announced the departure of fashion designer Nicola Brognano after three years at the helm of the house’s creative direction.
Without going into further detail about the reasons that would have led to this decision, the house has limited itself to pointing out that this decision has been taken in agreement with the designer. This is a point from which Brognano could end up betting on reactivating his own brand, a project that ended up opening the doors to the creative direction of Blumarine, at which point it was put on hold.
Marco Marchi, founder of the Italian multinational Eccellenze Italiane, Blumarine’s parent company, said: “Nicole has successfully reinterpreted Blumarine’s DNA, presenting it in an original and contemporary way, and as a result has rekindled the industry’s and customers’ interest in the brand. I warmly thank Nicola for the high levels of professionalism she has demonstrated over the nearly 4 years of this fruitful collaboration”.
“Working as creative director for Blumarine, a brand I have always followed closely with great interest, has been deeply enriching, professionally, creatively and personally,” added Brognano. “Putting the spotlight back on the brand has been a unique and exciting experience”, for which “I would like to thank Marco Marchi for this opportunity, and my team for the extraordinary work we have done together”.
