BERLIN — Natalie Acatrini has been named creative director of Strenesse.
She succeeds Gabriele Strehle, who, as reported, stepped down from the position she held for three decades at the end of 2012.
As a freelance designer and consultant, Acatrini has worked with numerous German and international premium and designer brands including Jil Sander, René Lezard, Escada and Boss Women during her more than 30 years in the industry. She also had an eponymous label from 1995 to 2002.
Overseeing the Strenesse design team, Acatrini will be responsible for the entire Strenesse portfolio. This includes the Strenesse women’s and men’s collections as well as accessories.
The sportier Strenesse Blue range was discontinued last season, with more casual design elements now incorporated into the Strenesse collection.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
