Etro – the Italian luxury fashion house – has announced Marco De Vincenzo as its new Creative Director for the women’s, men’s and home collections. Considered one of the most innovative designers of the new generation, Marco’s debut at the maison will take place with the women’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection, which will show during Milan Fashion Week in September 2022.
After graduating from the European Institute of Design in Rome, in 2000, De Vincenzo started a long collaboration with Fendi for the accessories lines, before launching his eponymous women’s ready-to-wear brand in 2009. At that time, he was awarded the ﬁrst prize in the new talents competition “Who is on Next?” organised by Altaroma in collaboration with Vogue Italia.
Veronica, Kean and Jacopo Etro will continue to be involved in the development of the brand’s strategy in partnership with the private equity ﬁrm L Catterton, the majority shareholder.
Fabrizio Cardinali, Etro’s Chief Executive Oﬃcer, said: “As part of the brand’s new course, we welcome with enthusiasm the arrival of Marco De Vincenzo. Through his sensitivity for colours, prints and fabrics, we are sure that Marco will be able to translate at best Etro’s extraordinary heritage into new interpretations for the diﬀerent brand’s collections and also giving a new drive to the world of accessories”.
