MILAN — Boglioli has tapped Italian designer Davide Marello as its first creative director, to oversee the collections for both men and women.

“Many have asked me, ‘Why do you need a creative director?’ I am firmly convinced that, while the house has been successful for the past 20 years, the creative director will be instrumental in transforming the brand’s heritage into a new vision of our tailoring tradition,” said Giovanni Mannucci, president and chief executive officer of Boglioli. “Together with Davide as creative director, our objective is to share our affection, to develop the innovation of Boglioli and to further our commitment to excellence and elegance.”

Marello began his career working for small brands prior to moving on to Giorgio Armani and Gucci, where he oversaw the formal men’s department for nine years.

His first men’s collection for Boglioli, for fall 2016, will be presented during Milan fashion week in January. The men’s spring collection for 2016 had been created by Jay Vosoghi.
