Matthew Williamson's time at Italian design house Pucci might be coming to an end. WWD is reporting that Emilio Pucci is currently searching for design assistants to replace the British boho designer who is about to open a store in the US. Williamson's own brand has gone from strength to strength and early next year he is due to open a US flagship in Manhattan's meat-packing district.
His only other stand alone store is on London's Bruton Street.
Williamson joined Pucci, a division of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, three years ago and started his own label in 1997. Celebrity followers include Sienna Miller and Jade Jagger. We wonder who could possibly replace Williamson?
