Hagglund, who has his own creative agency in Stockholm, will start in the newly created role on 4 September.

The role was previously split between Gordon Richardson, creative director for Topman, and Kate Phelan, creative director for Topshop. Both will leave the business later this year.

Through his studio, Hagglund has previously worked with H&M and Hugo Boss. Before that he was managing director at Swedish advertising agency Storakers McCann, and art director at Vogue Paris.

Arcadia boss Sir Philip Green said: “The appointment of David Hagglund in the newly combined role continues to mark the start of a new era for Topshop Topman in moving both brands forward in their ongoing global expansion. I am delighted to welcome David, who will be joining Paul Price, our new CEO, on the same day and I look forward to working with them both to drive the business forward.”

Price, currently chief merchandising officer at Burberry, has worked at the luxury brand for almost 10 years. He was named in his new role as CEO for Topshop/Topman in July.
