say what you will, but coming up with a collection like this in less than a month is nothing short of a miracle (or really, really good reality t.v!) (hugs to style.com for pics!)milan - so this is how the couture cookies crumble at ferre? the house of gianfranco ferre, who passed away unexpectedly last year, will NOT be hiring a new creative director to replace lars nilsson. according to michela piva, the company's ceo, they will follow the lead of the house of valentino, where seperate design teams work on the mens and womens lines. i guess this means that ferre's stefano citron and federico piaggi, who designed the labels' fall/winter collection without nilsson did a good enough job for the model to continue. according to piva, they only had roughly two weeks to complete designs for the collection since apparently when nilsson left, he took all is work with him. gangsta.
