Reached by phone on Thursday, OLG president Franco Pené said that the collaboration with the buzzy brand will start with the fall 2018 collection, which OAMC creative directors Luke and Lucie Meier will unveil with a runway show at Paris Fashion Week.
Last April, the designers were named creative directors of Jil Sander, which is owned by OLG parent company Onward Holdings, following the exit of former creative director Rodolfo Paglialunga, who joined the brand in 2014.
Although Pené confirmed the news, an OAMC spokesperson said “nothing is confirmed for the time being.”
OLG produces the collections of a range of international labels. In particular, the company manufactures the ready-to-wear lineups of Rochas, Antonio Berardi and Mulberry, as well the footwear lines of Rochas, Mulberry, Proenza Schouler and See by Chloé.
In addition, along with Jil Sander, Onward Holdings controls several fashion labels, including Joseph, J. Press and leather goods maker Moreau Paris. It also holds a stake in luxury footwear label Charlotte Olympia.
