Darren Skey has left luxury retailer Harvey Nichols after eight years, Drapers has learned.
Skey, who was head of menswear, told Drapers: “I have left and at present I’m looking at opportunities. I will be consulting for a little while whilst I assess new projects.” His last day was 31 August.
Having previously worked at River Island and House of Fraser, Skey first joined Harvey Nichols as junior merchandiser in 2003. He then moved to Gap and Debenhams, before returning to Harvey Nichols as menswear buying and merchandising manager in 2008.
He was put in charge of the store’s menswear department five years ago and has spent that time expanding its offer, adding a host of new and emerging names and exclusives. This culminated in the recent relaunch of the menswear department of its flagship store in Knightsbridge.
