NEW YORK — In what appears to be yet another tale of a marriage between a designer and their backer gone sour, Devi Kroell has left the company that bears her name.
On Thursday, the six-year-old luxury accessories and ready-to-wear label confirmed that “Kroell has decided that she will step down from the company she established. She informed her staff on Tuesday that she is resigning as the [chief executive officer] and creative director of the company, although she will remain a shareholder and a member of the board of directors.”
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
