GREISS LEAVES RYKIEL: After less than 18 months as creative director of Sonia Rykiel’s main fashion line, Gabrielle Greiss has left the French fashion house. “We separated by mutual agreement,” house president Nathalie Rykiel confirmed to WWD on Monday, adding the house’s fashion direction remains in her and Sonia’s hands. “I have put in place a design studio, with a certain number of people under my artistic direction and of course, that of Madame Rykiel,” she said. After working with Sonia Rykiel in the studio for two years, Greiss was promoted to creative director in December 2007 to lend a younger, modern aesthetic to the label. Greiss, who trained at Central Saint Martins in London, worked at Lanvin, Martine Sitbon and Anna Molinari before joining Rykiel. Her next move could not be learned.
