MILAN — Italian apparel brand Cruciani said Tuesday that it tapped Roberto Menichetti as creative director, confirming reports in these columns in December.

“We are friends and he is a star — a genius, enormously talented,” Luca Caprai, Cruciani founder and chief executive officer,said of Menichetti, who has had stints at Burberry Prorsum and Celine as well as his own short-lived collection. “Cruciani is a high-quality brand that needed Menichetti to fully express itself and to bloom.” Menichetti will be in charge of Cruciani’s men’s, women’s and accessories collections in a “very, very long-term project,” said Caprai. Menichetti’s first collection for Cruciani is being showcased at Pitti Uomo in Florence.
