Derek Lam to leave Tod's

Designer Derek Lam has reportedly left luxury goods maker Tod’s after more than five years as creative director.

According to reports Lam’s autumn 12 collection, which was presented at Milan Fashion Week last month, was his last for the label.

Lam first designed for Tod’s in 2005 with a capsule sportswear collection for spring 06, and then in November 2006 he was named creative director for the entire brand including ready-to-wear, handbags and shoes.

There has been speculation that John Galliano has been in talks with the company to either revamp its Schiaparelli brand or do a capsule collection.

Lam is the latest in a number of high profile names to depart designer brands. Earlier this month Stefano Pilati left Yves Saint Laurent to be replaced by Hedi Slimane. In February Jil Sander creative director Raf Simons left with Jil Sander stepping back into the role.
