He’s been at the helm of one of the world’s most renowned fashion houses for 14 years but yesterday it was announced that Alber Elbaz is leaving Lanvin, effective immediately. There’s an air of mystery surrounding his sudden departure as his team was only informed on the morning of the announcement and the brand announced the following statement today:

“Today the House of Lanvin has ended its collaboration with Alber Elbaz. We would like to thank him for the chapter he has written in the House’s 125 year history. The House of Lanvin confirms the implementation of its corporate strategic plan to continue making the oldest of the Parisian fashion houses, the Ambassador of French luxury’s excellence, in the independent spirit of its founder Jeanne Lanvin.”
