The 33rd Festival of Fashion and Photography is set to be an intense affair, with Haider Ackermann attending as guest of honour, and a range of exhibitions, films, and contests for fashion, accessories and photography.
Few Italian luxury brands have weathered the long global slowdown as well as Ermenegildo Zegna, which has just posted excellent results for 2017, despite a period of growing competition in high-end menswear.
Ackermann was named creative director of the LVMH-owned menswear label in September 2016 but his tenure proved short. The announcement on Friday immediately fueled speculation about if Kris Van Assche will replace him.
The Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography has named the Berluti creative director as head of its fashion prize jury, while the Koché founder and designer takes charge of accessories.
