Emanuel Ungaro loses another designer

French fashion house Emanuel Ungaro has lost its menswear designer, Franck Boclet, just days after the departure of chief womenswear designer Estrella Archs.

Emanuel Ungaro is understood to have put its men’s catwalk collection on hold, following the departure of Boclet, who has been with the label since 2007.

A spokeswoman for Ungaro told WWD that the company would continue to produce its licensed menswear lines and may relaunch a men’s catwalk collection in the future.

Boclet told WWD that he has signed a deal with an Italian industrial partner to launch an eponymous menswear collection during Paris men’s fashion week in June.

He said the monochrome collection will include tailored clothing and sportswear and will be priced around 20% lower than the majority of luxury menswear labels and will initially launch in China, the Middle East and Russia.

Estrella Archs left Emanuel Ungaro last week. The fashion house also parted company with its artistic adviser, actress Lindsay Lohan this year after just one collection. Ungaro’s president and chief executive Mounir Moufarrige resigned in December. Emanuel Ungaro is understood to be seeking a new creative director.
