NEW FACES: A wind of change is blowing through the creative departments of a number of Italian fashion brands. On Thursday, Genny revealed the departure of creative director Gabriele Colangelo. High-end apparel manufacturer Swinger International, the owner of Genny, tapped Colangelo in 2011 to relaunch the women’s wear label, which was popular in the Eighties and Nineties. According to sources, Genny is still looking for a new creative director.

Meanwhile, eco-friendly label Cangiari tapped Paulo Melim Andersson as creative director. Andersson, who had the same position at Chloé until March 2008, will make his debut at Cangiari with the spring 2014 collection.

“This brand creates excellence through the valorization of craftsmanship,” said Melim Andersson. “My goal is to combine the language of contemporary design with the know-how of the local tradition in a sophisticated yet wearable product targeted to customers who love exclusivity but consider ethic aspects.”
