Christos Angelides: What Twitter said

The industry took to Twitter to respond to the news today that product boss Christos Angelides is leaving Next after 28 years. Here is what they said:

Honor Westnedge ‏@honor_verdict 

Next has come a long way in terms of product, fashionability & risk so [needs] someone with vision to carry this forward

Honor Westnedge ‏@honor_verdict 

He will have built a good team so transition should be fairly seamless - so long as someone leads the strategy

Drapers ‏@Drapers  

Next share price has fallen off a cliff since the announcement about Christos - down 1.66% since 2pm. Not surprising when you consider his impact at Next

Nick Bubb @NickBubb1

Christos clearly wants a new challenge, but A&F’s problem may be its pricing not its product

Maureen Hinton ‏@maureen_retail  

Christos Angelides to be President of kids brand - an area Next excels in. But needs more change in A&F adult range

Kate Ormrod ‏@kate_verdict 

Interested to see what he does - the brand is in need of a revamp.

Catherine Neilan @CatNeilan

Angelides will have his work cut out reversing A&F’s performance LFLs down 10% last year

Ashmole and Co ‏@Ashmoleandco 

Blow to Next as fashion director departs - Christos Angelides to join Abercrombie & Fitch
