Angelina Ypma Leaves Issa London

She has left her post as chief executive officer after a little more than a year, the company has confirmed.

LONDON — Angelina Ypma has left her post as chief executive officer of Issa London after a little more than a year, the company has confirmed.

Ypma took up her job on August 1, 2012, and saw the company through its collaboration with Banana Republic on a capsule collection of knitwear and clothing, which is in-store now.

“We can confirm that Angelina Ypma has left the company to pursue other interests, and we wish her the best,” said a company spokeswoman. She added that Ypma’s replacement has yet to be confirmed.

Ypma’s departure comes a few months after the brand’s founder and creative director, Daniella Helayel, left the company. In May, Issa named Blue Farrier to replace Helayel at the creative helm.

Before joining Issa, Ypma was managing director of Bulgari U.K. and Ireland. She has worked for brands including Chanel, Cartier and Lanvin.

Issa is majority owned by Camilla Al Fayed, who purchased a controlling stake in the company in 2011.
