Olivier Theyskens Named Artistic Director of Azzaro Couture
Theyskens is now in charge of the brand’s couture collections, ready-to-wear lines, and women’s and men’s accessories. He will unveil his first collection for the house during Couture Week in Paris in July 2020.

“Loris Azzaro left behind a considerable, very inspiring legacy,” said Theyskens in a release. “I am excited, thrilled, and honored to have the opportunity of bringing my vision to this legendary, iconoclastic house, for which freedom and pleasure remain ever-as-contemporary founding values. I would like to carry on this atypical universe through my collections while infusing them with my own perspective.”

“Olivier Theyskens has a unique ability to immerse himself in a legacy and to revisit it in a contemporary verve,” added Azzaro Couture CEO Gabriel de Linage. “His fondness for asserted sensuousness and the flowing contrasts of materials and cuts naturally echo the style of Loris Azzaro and his emblematic muses. We are thrilled to welcome him to our House and to our historical workshops.”

L’AGENCE Debuted Their Fall 2020 Collection at the Bowery Hotel
No longer a newcomer to the New York Fashion Week calendar, L’AGENCE presented their Fall 2020 collection at the iconic Bowery Hotel in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The event marked their fourth consecutive season presenting at NYFW. Suiting played a central role in the wardrobe of the L’AGENCE woman for fall. The blazers paired effortlessly with the signature denim that has become a cornerstone of the brand, with plenty of silk separates in dynamic prints mixed in.

“A woman who incorporates L’AGENCE into her wardrobe has an appreciation for the classics, which is why suiting is such a significant message for us this season,” said L’AGENCE CEO and creative director, Jeffrey Rudes. “Of course, she also is trend-savvy and of-the-moment, which is why we’re pushing boundaries with compelling prints in classic silhouettes each season. This gives our customer the opportunity to participate in trends without being ‘trendy.’”
