The American fashion house Oscar De La Renta has appointed the British-born former artistic helm of Parisian luxury label Nina Ricci, Peter Copping, as its new creative director.

The 48-year-old, who will join his new position at the New York-based label on November 3rd, 2014, will be responsible for all product categories of the brand, and would report to Oscar de la Renta as well as the company’s chief executive officer, Alex Bolen.

The graduate from London’s Royal College of Art and Central Saint Martins will showcase his first collection for the label in February 2015.

While speaking on the new appointment, the 82-year-old design veteran Oscar de la Renta said, “I’m very happy Peter has agreed to join us. He is a great talent and along with our shared design sensibilities, we both have a deep curiosity about the wider world, from music and art to architecture and gardens.”

“Our Industry has not always done the best job when it comes to changes in design leadership. My hope is that, in leading this selection, and actively participating in the transition, I can insure the right design future for our company and brand,” explained the octogenarian.

Copping expressed his delight in a statement “It is an immense pleasure for me to join Oscar de la Renta as Creative Director in November. After a career of 20 years in Paris, this is an important next step for me. Oscar de la Renta has defined American elegance for generations of women, and the opportunity to work with him and help ensure the future of the brand is very exciting.”

Also the Oscar de la Renta, LLC CEO, Alex Bolen, revealed “We have spent a considerable time determining how best to bring a new and important creative voice into our company and have followed closely Peter's work over the last few years. Peter will bring a fresh perspective to our brand, continuing the evolution of our business.”

“While Peter and Oscar share much in terms of aesthetics, they also work in the same way. Many of our vendor partners – the fabric mills, the embroiderers, the knit factories - already know Peter well. Further, Peter’s vast experience in shoes, handbags, and jewelry will be brought to bear immediately as continued growth of those categories is central to our expansion plans,” he adds.

Established in 1965, Oscar de la Renta is one of the world’s leading luxury goods firms that specialises in women’s ready-to-wear collection, bridalwear, childrenswear, home decor and accessories.

Before his 5-year-long stint as the Artistic Director at Ninia Ricci, Copping has spent 12 years at Louis Vuitton as Studio Director under Marc Jacobs and prior to that has worked at Sonia Rykiel and Christian Lacroix. (PB)
