Fashion house Roberto Cavalli SpA has parted ways with its creative director Peter Dundas, according to widespread press reports. Dundas is not a veteran at the Florentine label, having joined a little over a year and a half ago.
Dundas, who had previously worked with designer brands such as Emanuel Ungaro, Emilo Pucci and Dolce & Gabbana, was appointed to the creative helm of Cavalli in March 2015.
Commenting on Dundas’s departure, Roberto Cavalli CEO Gian Giacomo Ferraris confirmed the exit and thanked Dundas for “his contribution to the brand,” WWD reported.
“On behalf of Roberto Cavalli and our shareholders, we thank Peter Dundas for his contribution to the brand, and we wish him well for his future,” he said. “As Roberto Cavalli goes through a period of transformation, the design team will carry on and the appointment of a new creative director will be made in due course.”
Dundas’s last collection for the house was for spring 2017, presented in September in Milan. This is actually the second time around for Dundas at Roberto Cavalli. His first stint was longer, from 2002 to 2005.
