DeLibran succeeds Geraldo de Conceiçao, a Canadian designer who loggedthree fashion shows for the Parisian house, which is synonymous withinsouciant Left Bank style and striped knitwear. He also had joinedRykiel from Vuitton, where he was a design director — recruited, infact, by de Libran, who was studio director of women’s ready-to-wear andthe front woman for Vuitton’s cruise and pre-fall collections.
