Since Peter Dundas left Emilo Pucci just weeks ago, there’s been a great deal of mystery surrounding what the Norwegian-American designer would do next. When it was announced earlier today that Dundas would be taking over the reins at Italian fashion house, Roberto Cavalli, the guessing game was officially over. To many, the decision came as no surprise.
Before Dundas’s was heading up Emilio Pucci, (an endeavor which spanned seven years), the designer worked for Cavalli from 2002-2005, when the Italian brand relaunched.
“This is a homecoming for me,” Dundas said “It is an honour for me to continue to evolve the wonderful world of Roberto Cavalli and I am very excited by the possibilities and potential of this unique brand. I cannot wait to get started.”
Indeed, with a cult following which includes fans such as Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, and Ciara, it’s certainly exciting to see how Dundas will transform the brand.
