Christelle Kocher’s fall collection was the first since her Koché label joined forces with Renzo Rosso’s fashion group OTB, and it showed.
The French designer is leveraging her Italian connections to propel her Koché label into a new phase of expansion.
The collection will bow for fall 2020 and include all product categories, including ready-to-wear, footwear, handbags and small leather goods, for women and men.
Winners of past editions joined founder Nathalie Dufour to celebrate the prize’s 30th anniversary at the French Ministry of Culture.
The LVMH-owned brand is one of eight labels joining the official presentation schedule, while the runway schedule will see three additions.
He is to start on July 1 and will oversee artistic direction globally, a position which includes collections, communication and special projects.
Renzo Rosso, the Italian entrepreneur who bought Margiela’s brand in 2002, will advise the winner of the association’s main Fashion Award.
