Michael Kors Holdings Limited, a global luxury lifestyle brand, has announced that Marcel Ostwald has been named to the newly created role of senior vice president, menswear.

Ostwald’s appointment, effective August 1, 2015, fills a key role in the global brand’s growing menswear business. He will work closely with Michael Kors and Mark Brashear, president of menswear, in developing the creative brand strategy and product vision for the men’s division, the company said in a statement.

“We are very pleased that Marcel Ostwald is bringing his talent, experience and innovative spirit to Michael Kors,” said John D. Idol, chairman and CEO of the company. “We’ve stated our intention to build a substantial, global men’s business at Michael Kors, and exceptional design is critical to achieving that goal. We look forward to Marcel’s leadership in creating both exceptional product and a strong men’s fashion identity that captures the essence of the Michael Kors brand DNA.”

Ostwald spent the last 11 years at Hugo Boss, where his most recent title was senior head of creative management and concept design for BOSS Sportswear. His time at Hugo Boss included a wide range of roles in creative management, including for tailored clothing, shoes, leather and accessories, as well as sportswear. Prior to working at Hugo Boss he was a menswear designer for JOOP!

"I look forward to working with Marcel,” says Michael Kors. “His talent, experience and understanding of brand-building make him the perfect addition to help our continued expansion of the Michael Kors men's business."

“I am excited to be joining Michael Kors at this special moment in the development of its menswear business,” says Ostwald. “It’s a tremendous brand with a unique sensibility. I look forward to working with Michael Kors, Mark Brashear and the deep pool of talent at the company to take the men’s business to the next level.” (SH)
