Ferragamo Taps Maximilian Davis.
The latest in the ever-shuffling world of designer musical chairs, Italian label Salvatore Ferragamo recently announced Maximilian Davis as creative director for the label under new chief executive officer Marco Gobbetti.
Hailing from Manchester, the London College of Fashion graduate who’s made a name for himself with the debut of his eponymous label in 2020, alongside working under the likes of Grace Wales Bonner, is set to kick off in his new position this week. Speaking on the news, Gobbetti commented:
“I am delighted to welcome Maximilian at the House of Ferragamo. The clarity of his vision together with the level of execution and his powerful aesthetic make him one of the most brilliant talents of his generation, His work is defined by elegance, refined sensuality, and constant commitment to quality. Through his lens of contemporary sensibility, he will write a new, exciting chapter for this house built on a heritage of creativity, craftsmanship, sophistication, and outstanding human values”.
