Roberto Cavalli Name New Creative Director

Paul Surridge Portrait

Fashion moves! In news announced moments ago, Roberto Cavalli have revealed that they have tapped Paul Surridge as their new Creative Director, replacing Peter Dundas who left the brand last year. Surridge comes to the Italian powerhouse from Acne Studios, where he was Creative Consultant for their menswear collections. Prior to that, the British-born designer was Creative Director of Z Zegna from 2011 to 2014, alongside experience at Jil Sander, Calvin Klein and Burberry. “I am honoured and proud to carry forward the legacy of this extraordinary Italian house,” the designer said this morning. “This is a unique opportunity to contribute a new chapter to the Roberto Cavalli universe which positively celebrates the beauty, sensuality and power of women. It’s my intention to show the passion I share for the codes and vision on which Roberto Cavalli built his brand while celebrating the excellence of Italian craftsmanship.” Surridge is expected to take his first runway bow at the Spring 2018 show. We’re excited to see what changes he will bring to the house – and, in the meantime, enjoy this nice B&W shot of the man in question. Massive congrats from all at Ten Towers!
