Demna Gvasalia exits Vetements. It’s time to shop it all!
WWD just confirmed that Demna Gvasalia is exiting Vetements but will continue in his role as Balenciaga creative director.
“I started Vetements because I was bored of fashion and against all odds fashion did change once and forever since Vetements appeared and it also opened a new door for so many,» said Demna Gvasalia himself in a statement released over the weekend. «So I feel that I have accomplished my mission of a conceptualist and design innovator at this exceptional brand and Vetements has matured into a company that can evolve its creative heritage into a new chapter on its own.” “Vetements has always been a collective of creative minds,» said brother Guram Gvasalia in the same statement. «We will continue to push the boundaries even further, respecting codes and the authentic values of the brand, and keep on supporting honest creativity and genuine talent. What Demna has accomplished over the past few years represents a key chapter in the story of Vetements. We are very grateful to Demna for having contributed to the great momentum of the house.” You’ll be missed Demna!
