Camille Miceli's appointment as artistic director of Emilio Pucci confirmed
Camille Miceli officially joined the Emilio Pucci brand on September 1. Her appointment as artistic director, which FashionNetwork.com reported on last month, has now been confirmed by LVMH. Previously, Miceli held the role of creative director for accessories at Louis Vuitton. Her arrival at Pucci comes on the heels of the French luxury giant's announcement in June that it has acquired the entirety of the Florentine fashion house, of which it had held 67% since 2000.
Miceli " will begin a new chapter in the history of this Maison, which has a rich and unique heritage. I am certain that her energy and talent as well as the wealth of experience she has gained from the greatest Maisons in the Group will be key to the success of the brand’s new global project," commented LVMH chairman and CEO Sidney Toledano in a brief release published on Wednesday. The executive travelled to the brand's HQ in Milan specially to introduce the new artistic director.
The designer's previous experience also includes a five-year stint at Christian Dior Couture, between 2009 and 2014, when she served as creative director for fashion jewellery and creative consultant for leather goods. Prior to this, she took part in the launch of Louis Vuitton's ready-to-wear line under the direction of Marc Jacobs. Outside of the LVMH group, she has held roles at Azzedine Alaïa and at Chanel, where she worked in PR.
Born to a French mother and an Italian father, and boasting some 30 years of experience in luxury and fashion, Miceli appears to have all the necessary assets to breathe new life into Emilio Pucci, which has been operating without an artistic director since 2017.
