He will be responsible for the creative direction of the brand and report to chief executive Paolo Riva.

“I could not have found a cooler, more intelligent designer and I cannot wait to watch him shine as our chief creative officer,” said von Furstenberg, founder and chairwoman of Diane von Furstenberg Studio.

“The spirit with which this brand was founded is incredibly relevant today. I am thrilled to be part of its next chapter,” said Saunders. “Diane has a unique ability to deeply connect with women and I am excited to be working with Paolo on the future of the brand.”

Saunders founded his eponymous womenswear label in 2003 and announced he was stepping down as creative director for personal reasons in December last year. The brand closed following the spring 16 season.
