On Friday, the French brand, owned by Compagnie Financière Richemont, named Natacha Ramsay-Levi as its creative director, responsible for all ready-to-wear, accessories and leather goods.
Natacha Ramsay-Levi is the new creative director of Chloé. The French designer arrives at Chloé following the departure of Clare Waight Keller, who held the role of creative director for six years.
Though Ms. Ramsay-Levi is a relative unknown, having toiled for the last 15 years as a designer under Nicolas Ghesquière, both in his role as artistic director of Louis Vuitton and previously at Balenciaga, on one level the appointment is not a surprise. Ramsay-Levi is leaving her position as creative director of women’s ready-to-wear at Louis Vuitton for the Chloé spot. The Spring 2018 Chloé collection will be Ramsay-Levi’s solo debut in the limelight of Paris Fashion Week.
