After almost five years since his inaugural appointment with Salvatore Ferragamo, we now bid goodbye to creative director Paul Andrew. According to Business of Fashion, Andrew will depart after completing the Pre-Spring 2022 collection in early May. And as of yet, no replacement has been named, nor has the designer announced his next steps.

Throughout these years,  Paul Andrew helmed both men’s and women’s categories at the Italian Maison, contributing artistic excellence to the collections. He started on strong footing with his commencement in 2016 as the brand’s first women’s footwear design director. Since then, he has been promoted to creative director, leading all categories including apparel. Prior to Ferragamo, Andrew has worked with high-profile and street labels like Calvin Klein, Alexander McQueen and Donna Karan before establishing his footwear line, Paul Andrew Design, in 2012.

His departure accompanies extensive changes to the board. Chairman Ferruccio Ferragamo will be replaced by his brother Leonardo, while Giovanna, a daughter of founder Salvatore, is set to step down. The revamp also sees three new independent board members. Giacomo Ferragamo, who led the product development team and hired Andrew, will return to the board after her departure last year.
