COMUNE plans to move operational headquarters

Jun '11
Last Friday, lifestyle brand COMUNE announced its plan to relocate its operational headquarters from Costa Mesa, CA to the Los Angeles Art District. At the same time, several members of the COMUNE team have chosen to resign from their positions at the company. COMUNE is deeply saddened by the resignations of these employees and wants to thank them for the contributions they have made.

Co-founding partner, Sven Altmetz, has taken over the helm from co-founder Frank Delgadillo. The original COMUNE designer, Jacob McCabe, will maintain his position as the head designer and continue working with his design staff. Corey Smith will continue to head up the Drop City program, Contributing Artists program and the Snow Team.

“COMUNE is determined to work through this change”, says Altmetz. “We are in the process of replacing the sales and marketing team with qualified people who represent the image of the brand and whom we are certain will work well with our distributors and retailers.”

Altmetz also assures current retailers that all Fall and Holiday orders will be shipped in a timely manner as the company will continue operating business-as-usual.

COMUNE insists it will stay rooted in the foundation that has motivated the brand since its start three years ago. The concept, design vision and merchandising will continue without interruption.

Look for the exciting new COMUNE Spring 2012 Men's and Women's lines at trade shows or via your local sales representative.

COMUNE was formed from the idea that there will always be people out there who not only embrace the rawness and imperfection of every day life but use it to creatively push the boundaries of what's possible in fashion, art, and music their own way, with complete disregard of the consequences.
