WWD just reported that PPR/The Gucci Group, the company that has a 51% stake in the Alexander McQueen brand has decided to continue the McQueen label.
Robert Polet, the president and CEO of Gucci Group stated: “We believe in the future of the brand…Lee was very proud of the people working in his company, and so am I.”
McQueen’s A/W 2010 collection will still be shown in Paris in a few weeks.
All designers have assistants – I’m just wondering who will take the helm of Alexander McQueen. Will they promote an assistant? Or bring in a big name? Either way, I’m interested to see who will be named – I can’t really imagine anyone doing a brand as visionary as Alexander McQueen any justice. Time will tell. Who do you think should be named the designer of Alexander McQueen?
