Haider Ackermann is no longer Berluti’s creative director. The exit comes 3 seasons after he joined the company and has been somewhat of a surprise to followers of the brand, having achieved stellar reviews during his short time there.
WWD reports that Antoine Arnault, chief executive officer of Berluti, made a statement about the move: “Haider has been at the core of the evolution of Berluti’s collections and image these past few seasons. I want to thank him for everything he has accomplished since his arrival. His feel for materials, colors, and his wonderful shows will always be linked to the history of the house.”
Ackermann also gave a statement, saying: “I am immensely proud to have been able to put my creativity at the service of this house with an exceptional knowhow, whilst working with a passionate team. I thank them for their commitment.”
