Gant appoints Bob Andrews as creative director

Swedish lifestyle brand Gant has appointed Bob Andrews as creative director.

Andrews will join Gant on April 15 and will replace Gant’s previous creative director Brian Rennie.

Andrews was previously at Polo Ralph Lauren for 17 years, holding various positions, latterly senior vice-president of design for men’s and women’s accessories.

He then left the fashion industry in 2007 to work on a range of film and interior design projects. His appointment at Gant will mark his return to the industry.

Andrews said: “It’s both an honour and a privilege to be joining the Gant family. It’s a fantastic time to come aboard and there is no better place to engage my love of time-honoured fashion and style. I cannot wait to get started working with this talented team of people. Gant’s 60 years of heritage presents an unlimited source of inspiration to me which will serve to bring new and innovative ideas to the wonderful world of Gant.”

Dirk-Jan Stoppelenburg, chief executive of Gant, added: “Bob brings a wealth of relevant experience to Gant, and it is our firm belief that Gant will reach new and as yet unseen levels of creative vision and aesthetic execution under Bob’s artistic leadership.”

Gant opened a UK flagship store on Regent street in January and has plans to grow its UK retail business this year.
