MILAN – Lars Nilsson is out of Gianfranco Ferré.
The fashion house said in a statement that it has ended its relationship with the Swedish designer. It did not explain why.
The Ferré fashion show will be held as scheduled on Feb. 18. The statement specifies that the fall collection is the fruit of the design team and is a tribute to the creativity of the late Gianfranco Ferrè, on which the brand wants to base its future strategies.
Nilsson was hired in September following Ferré’s death in June.
A new creative direction will be named after the show, the company said.
