Oscar De La Renta have anounced that Peter Copping will be their inaugural creative director.
Peter Copping recently resigned as creative director at Nina Ricci, and his position at the house already looks far more promising than John Galliano’s three week stint at Oscar De La Renta last year.
82 year old Oscar De La Renta has expressed his excitement over the hire: “He is a great talent and along with our shared design sensibilities, we both have a deep curiosity about the wider world…My hope is that, in leading this selection, and actively participating in the transition, I can ensure the right design future for our company and brand”.
Copping will start at Oscar De La Renta on November 3rd.
