(NEW YORK) Lindsay Lohan was confirmed out at Ungaro in February, CEO Mounir Moufarriage left the company shortly after the Fall 2010 presentation, and designer Estrella Archs just departed last week, but it appears that at least one more is jumping ship at Ungaro—for now. After three years with the brand, men’s wear designer Franck Boclet is leaving, it was announced today. The split was reported amicable, with Boclet sharing his plans to design an eponymous men’s line, slated to launch at men’s fashion week in Paris in June. As far as Ungaro’s men’s offerings? A spokesperson for the brand said it would focus on licensed men’s wear lines and might eventually return to runway collections.
The women’s Ungaro line is equally up in the air: though rumors persist that Giles Deacon is in talks with the brand’s owner, Asim Abdullah, his appointment has yet to be confirmed by Ungaro executives.
