BERLIN — Philipp Wolff has resigned as senior vice president of communications worldwide at Hugo Boss, WWD has learned.
The 12-year Boss veteran is leaving the company to pursue other interests which he said he could not discuss further at this time.
Until a successor is named, Boss’s corporate, retail and brand PR departments will report directly to chief executive officer Claus-Dietrich Lahrs.
Industry observers said Wolff was instrumental in building Boss brand awareness on a global scale, and in an internal memo, the company thanked him for his efforts.
Wolff was first based in Milan for the start-up of Boss Woman for two years, and then moved to Boss headquarters in Metzingen. Prior to joining Boss, Wolff was communications and marketing director of Escada.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
