MILAN — Trussardi has revealed that effective Friday, Milan Vukmirovic is no longer creative director of the Italian fashion brand.
When Vukmirovic joined the company in 2007, he was tasked with relaunching the Trussardi 1911 collection as well as unifying the label’s multiple product categories into a lifestyle brand. In the last few years, Vukmirovic, formerly of Gucci and Jil Sander, among others, introduced Trussardi’s first furniture collection and collaborated on the revamp of the Piazza della Scala concept store. Before his arrival, the creative duties were handled by a design team and for a brief period, president and chief executive officer Beatrice Trussardi’s younger sister, Gaia.
According to the company, the split was civil and Vukmirovic will move on to focus on his other projects, which include heading L’Officiel Hommes, photography and retail (he co-founded the Webster boutique in Miami Beach).
Beatrice Trussardi said, “I want to thank Milan Vukmirovic for his commitment, passion and dedication to Trussardi style, reinterpreting it with his contemporary vision. His talent has been an important moment in our company’s 100 years of tradition and his work has enriched new facets of our company.”
Trussardi said details on the creative direction of the brand will be revealed in the near future.
