Massimiliano Giornetti said Goodbye to Salvatore Ferragamo

The 44-year-old designer was part of the label's team since 2010 - he started as part of the meanswear team and in 2011 was promoted to creative director, overseeing the men's and women's collections. He brought new ideas into the 'DNA of the brand', but it is time for change obviously - which is a common event in the men's fashion world lately.

During the last month Stefano Pilati, Alessandro Sartori and Brendan Mullane left respectively Ermenegildo Zegna Couture, Berluti and Brioni.

For now Ferragamo counts on its internal design team, not rushing to choose a replacement for Giornetti.

'We will take this opportunity to revisit our creative approach. Over time the company has nurtured and sponsored many young designers and is fortunate to be able to count on an excellent in-house team', said Michele Norsa - the group chief executive of Salvatore Ferragamo.
