Giovanni Morelli Joins Valentino, Isabelle Harvie-Watt Exits Brand

IN AND OUT: Former Stuart Weitzman creative director Giovanni Morelli has joined Valentino as accessories design director, WWD has learned. He reports to creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli. Morelli, who left the Tapestry Inc.-owned brand in May after one year, is a former leather goods designer for Loewe, Marc Jacobs and Chloé.
Morelli’s exit followed allegations of sexual harassment filed by Stuart Weitzman’s vice president Thomas Gibb, but Tapestry itself has since taken action against Gibb, terminating him and filing its own lawsuit against the executive, alleging breach of contract, duty of loyalty and diversion of corporate opportunities.
At the same time, Valentino’s chief marketing officer Isabelle Harvie-Watt has exited the company after only six months. This was a new role at the company and it is understood it is now vacant.
Born and raised in London, Harvie-Watt has been working in Italy for more than 25 years. Before Valentino, she was a managing partner and chief executive officer of the Spring Group — Spring Studios and Spring Place — in Milan, tasked with expanding and managing the group’s footprint in Italy. Prior to this, Harvie-Watt spent five years as ceo and country manager of Havas Media Group in Italy. While at Havas, she also founded and launched Luxhub, a global strategic consulting division

Christopher Bastin Exits Gant

MILAN — Christopher Bastin has left his post as creative director of Gant, a role he held since 2012.
The designer first joined the Swedish-based company in 2005 as lead designer of men’s shirts. Four years later, he took on the post of head of design for the Gant Rugger casual label, which he re-launched in 2010.
“I’ve had a tremendous time at Gant,” said Bastin, who presented his last Gant collection at New York Fashion Week last September. “I’m proud of what I brought to the company and where we have taken our creative direction. I feel that my job at Gant is done — it
 is now time for me to pursue other dreams.”
“Christopher leaves a great footprint and will be missed,” said Gant chief executive officer Patrik Nilsson. “I would like to thank him for his passion and contribution. For years he spearheaded our design and has been integral in forming the Gant brand to what it is today.”
According to Nilsson, a new creative director is expected to join the brand by the end of the year.

Stefano Pilati Exits Agnona, Remains at Zegna

 
MILAN— Stefano Pilati is exiting Agnona, but will continue to be head of design at Ermenegildo Zegna.
Agnona’s spring 2016 collection to be presented in September will be finished by the brand’s design studio, but it is understood the group plans to continue investing in building the label and that a designer may be expected to succeed Pilati to direct the team, starting with the fall 2016 season.
Agnona was founded in 1953 and has been controlled by the Ermenegildo Zegna Group since 1999.
“The brand plans to continue to pursue its ambition to become a true global brand, founded on the quality of Italian textiles as well as on a strong, elegant and contemporary style to be shown in Milan’s Fashion Week in 2016. We will reorganize the design department accordingly,” said a group spokesman.
Pilati is said to be pursuing other personal projects in women’s ready-to-wear.
A retailer who spoke on condition of anonymity said the store “had evaluated buying Agnona and the collection was beautiful, of great quality, but very expensive and looked more like a capsule, as if it weren’t complete yet.” The retailer added that “perhaps this is not the range Pilati would like to explore. Agnona remains a classic
