Rykiel Confirms Langon as CEO

Executive joins firm from Lancel.

PARIS — Sonia Rykiel named Eric Langon its new chief executive officer, and said he would be charged with developing the brand internationally, particularly in North America and Asia.


This confirms a report in April 6 that Langon, previously chief operating officer at Lancel, owned by Compagnie Financière Richemont, would take up the management helm of Rykiel, whose chairman is Jean-Marc Loubier.


Prior to Lancel, Langon held executive roles at LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, including its Celine and Loewe brands.
