Roberto Cavalli Names
New Creative Director

 Roberto Cavalli has appointed Paul Surridge as its new creative director, replacing Peter Dundas, who left the label in October 2016.

British-born Surridge, whose appointment is effective immediately, will have creative responsibility for all of the group’s brands. He was most recently a creative consultant to Acne Studios, and was creative director of Z Zegna from 2011 to 2014 . The Central Saint Martins-trained designer also worked under Calvin Klein in the '90s, with Christopher Bailey at Burberry, and at Jil Sander under Raf Simons — a role in which he crossed paths with Gian Giacomo Ferraris, now CEO of Roberto Cavalli.
