De Le Bourdonnaye, who takes over from Ralph Toledano, headed Liberty from 2007 after running Christian Lacroix from 2003 to 2007 subsequent to positions at Disney, Pepsico and L'Oreal.

Toledano headed the prestigious label created in the 1950s by Gaby Aghion during a dazzling decade that saw fresh designers Stella McCartney and Phoebe Philo revive the house's former glory.

Current stylist is Britain's Hannah MacGibbon, a graduate of London's Saint Martin School and formerly of Valentino.
