PARIS — Leonard has tapped hot young Paris designer Maxime Simoens as its new creative director, WWD has learned.
Simoens, 26, is to take over from Véronique Leroy, whose contract ends this month after eight years at the house. Leroy presented her swan song collection for Leonard on Oct. 3, shortly before the two parties revealed that they were parting ways.
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)
