The management of the Parisian fashion house accuses its former creative director of aggression and a lack of creative projects.
Lanvin made a surprise announcement two weeks ago. After 14 years of work, Alber Elbaz leaves his post of creative director. The reasons for the designer's departure were not announced immediately, but it soon became clear that Elbaz was forced to leave due to a conflict with the shareholders of the house, its owner and CEO. A little later, the media reported that Lanvin employees publicly demanded explanations from the management, and also said that they were in shock. The answer was received immediately: Elbaz could not offer new creative projects, and also showed aggression towards the management.
To this, Elbaz himself said that he considers the company's management to be weak, in addition, he pointed out the lack of a marketing strategy and investment, as well as stagnation in sales. This, according to the designer, was the reason for his dismissal. In addition, Albert threatened the owner and CEO of the house. The designer is ready to give a detailed interview, if the former management does not stop undermining his reputation.
Currently, the parties refrain from continuing the dialogue, but it is clear that the case may end unsuccessfully for each of the parties. The name of the receiver Elbaz has not yet been announced. We follow the development of events.
