October 2015 is officially the month of goodbyes, at least for high fashion. It all started with Alexander Wang, who left the creative direction at Balenciaga. Then last week Raf Simons said au revoir to Dior for personal reasons and now, Alber Elbaz, announced he's leaving his position at Lanvin after 14 years, probably because of “disagreements between the charismatic Israeli designer and company principals: owner Shaw-Lan Wang and chief executive officer Michèle Huiban.”, as WWD reported. Rumours say that at Christian Dior, they're all waiting for him. Read below the official full statement released by the designer. "At this time of my departure from Lanvin on the decision of the company’s majority shareholder, I wish to express my gratitude and warm thoughts to all those who have worked with me passionately on the revival of Lanvin over the last 14 years; express my affection to all my wonderful colleagues in the Lanvin ateliers who accompanied me, and who enriched and supported my work. Together we have met the creative challenge presented by Lanvin and have restored its radiance and have returned it to its rightful position among France’s absolute luxury fashion houses. I also wish to express my profound and deepest gratitude to all of the clients and friends, to the French and international press and to all those business partners who collaborated with Lanvin, providing us with support since 2001. I wish the house of Lanvin the future it deserves among the best French luxury brands, and hope that it finds the business vision it needs to engage in the right way forward." Alber Elbaz has joined the French maison in 2001, transforming it in one of the most interesting luxury brand we all know today.
