Carven‘s artistic director duo, Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud, are departing the French label after less than two years at the company.
The pair, who were appointed to oversee womenswear in March 2015, are leaving “by mutual agreement,” reports WWD.
A statement released by the brand confirmed that a new artistic director would be appointed at a later date.
Martial and Caillaudaud met at fashion college in Paris and both went on to work at Givenchy. While Martial focused on knitwear, ready-to-wear and couture, Caillaudaud specialised in accessories – from jewellery to shoes. The pair were appointed as successors for Guillaume Henry at Carven, who left to join Nina Ricci in 2014. Martial and Caillaudaud’s last Carven collection was for spring/summer 2017.
This month it was also confirmed that Peter Dundas would be parting ways with Roberto Cavalli, and that Consuelo Castiglioni would be exiting Marni.
