Sources told WWD that Sialelli would leave the brand after four years, and that the company would establish the Lanvin Lab, inviting international talent for “creative partnerships”.

With the first guest talent expected in the next few weeks, Lanvin will reportedly be assembling a creative team and support for its leather goods and accessories products, which currently accounts for over half of its business.

Deputy General Manager Siddhartha Shukla told WWD: “Lanvin is poised for a new chapter. As we reimagine the brand, embracing the values instilled in it by Jeanne Lanvin over 130 years ago, we situate the house at the vanguard of fashion and culture at a time of extraordinary and inspiring change.”

Sialelli joined the brand from the menswear design team of Loewe in 2019, working through a series of regime changes. He was brought in by CEO Jean-Philippe Hecquet before he stepped down in 2020 and was replaced by interim CEO Joann Cheng. Siddhartha Shukla then took the reigns of the company in 2021.

He said: “I am deeply proud of what we have achieved at Lanvin over the past four years and wish to thank Lanvin and my team who through their unique talents and dedication have accompanied me in this great adventure.”
