Florentine House Salvatore Ferragamo has announced that Paul Andrew, its creative director is exiting the House in May, a post that he has held since 2019. Andrew took the helm of Salvatore Ferragamo after putting his women’s luxury shoe brand hold in 2016. But, the British designer has decided to leave the House to pursue other professional opportunities.
“I have been profoundly inspired by the intelligence and technical mastery of Salvatore Ferragamo, a man whose genius built the company that today bears his name,” notes Andrew in a statement. “It has been an honor to forward and give new life to his design legacy and ground-breaking innovation. I will always be grateful for this opportunity, proud of the work we have accomplished and encouraged to continue to create with integrity and conviction.”
The current creative team for the House will oversee the fashion direction for the brand. Micaela le Divelec Lemmi, CEO stated, “Salvatore Ferragamo thanks Paul Andrew for his passion and commitment and for his contribution to enhancing the position and creative vision of the house.”
