New chief executive appointed at Kenzo
LVMH has appointed Sylvain Blanc as the new chief executive of fashion house Kenzo.
Blanc will join the business from underwear brand Undiz where he held the same role. His career also includes working as vice president for Europe at The Kooples and stints at French department store Printemps and Barry Callebaut Group.
Sidney Toledano, LVMH chairman and chief executive, said: “I am delighted to welcome Sylvain as chief executive officer of Kenzo. He combines an entrepreneurial itinerary with a proven ability to relaunch and develop established brands. He has been tasked with opening a new chapter in the history of Kenzo.”
Blanc has replaced Sylvie Colin who is leaving the business to pursue a personal project.
Toledano added: “I want to sincerely thank Sylvie for her contribution over the past four years during which time Kenzo has consolidated its organisation and largely renewed its collections, while strengthening its presence in Asia.”
