PARIS – Chloé is parting ways with its creative director, Paulo Melim Andersson, and has named Hannah MacGibbon his successor, WWD has learned.

MacGibbon was a key member of the design team under former creative director Phoebe Philo, and helped define the hip femininity that catapulted Chloe to fashion’s big leagues.

Melim Andersson, who joined Chloé from Marni in 2006, showed three collections for the house and received mixed reviews.
