BERLIN — Bruno Pieters is stepping down as art director for Hugo Boss’ progressive Hugo collection to concentrate on his own label, Hugo Boss said. Boss added Pieters will act as a consultant for the Metzingen, Germany fashion house through May.
Pieters was not available for comment.
The Antwerp, Belgium-based designer took over the design leadership of the Hugo brand in 2007, and gave the Boss Group’s most unconventional men’s and women’s collection a sharp, new edge.
A new design team will be responsible for the fall 2010 collection, which will be presented to retailers in January.
“Bruno has given us a lot of important input and inspiration,” said Hugo Boss spokesman Philipp Wolff. “But there’s a lot of fresh talent in the [Hugo design] team who can now bring this fashion-forward brand into the future.”

She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.
