This morning Chloé announced Natacha Ramsay-Levi as the brand’s new creative director, starting April 3. She will oversee ready-to-wear, leather goods, and accessories.
Ramsay-Levi comes from Louis Vuitton where she worked closely with Nicolas Ghesquière as creative director of women’s ready-to-wear since 2013 and before that with Ghesquière at Balenciaga.
“I am very proud to join a house founded by a woman to dress women. I want to create fashion that enhances the personality of the woman who wears it, fashion that creates a character and an attitude, without ever imposing a ‘look,'” Ramsay-Levi said in a statement, WWD reports.
The news confirms earlier reports that Ramsay-Levi would succeed Chloé creative director Clare Waight Keller, who officially announced her departure in January. Waight Keller presented her final collection for the brand in early March―a whimsical collection with ’60s and ’70s vibes that was a true ode to the image of the Chloé girl Waight Keller created in her six years at the fashion house.
Ramsay-Levi’s first Chloé collection will be spring 2018, debuting at Paris Fashion Week in September.
