Nataša Čagalj Exits Ports 1961

MILAN — Ports 1961 is parting ways with its women’s creative director Nataša Čagalj.
A Central Saint Martins graduate, the designer joined the company in 2014 as creative director, succeeding Fiona Cibani, who held the role for four years.
“We are very grateful to Nataša for the outstanding work achieved during her tenure and wish her a bright future,” said Ports 1961 vice president Marc Boelen in a statement where the brand also highlighted Čagalj’s strategic role in kicking off a new chapter for the brand, “combining luxurious fabrics with a modern design.”
Čagalj unveiled her last collection for the Ports 1961 label last February with a runway show at London Fashion Week.
Prior to joining Ports 1961, Čagalj worked with Nino Cerruti and Peter Speliopoulos when he was appointed creative director of Cerruti Arte in Paris. She was then Alber Elbaz’s right-hand designer at Lanvin until she moved in 2005 to Stella McCartney, where she was head of design until 2012.
According to Ports 1961, a successor will be named soon.
Previously designed by creative director Milan Vukmirovic, the brand’s men’s line was discontinued last year and replaced with Ports V, which includes bi-monthly, unisex capsules. Vukmirovic is the creative director of the new brand.

Chief Merchant Scott Norris Exits Men’s Wearhouse

The changes have begun at Tailored Brands.
The California-based men’s wear retailer has parted ways with Scott Norris, the long-time chief merchant for its flagship Men’s Wearhouse division, WWD has learned.
Norris, who had been with the company since the mid-1990s, was named brand president of Men’s Wearhouse and Moores in 2014. He started his career as a buyer for Macy’s in 1991 and joined The Men’s Wearhouse as executive vice president and general merchandise manager in 1996, according to his LinkedIn profile.
“After 22 incredible years and countless contributions to The Men’s Wearhouse, Scott Norris has decided to leave the company to try something new,” a company spokesperson confirmed. “We wish him every success in his next chapter.”
Norris could not be reached for comment.
Last fall, Tailored Brands brought Carrie Ask on board as president of the Men’s Wearhouse and Moores brands. Norris, who had held that position since 2014, was named chief merchant.
At the end of March, the company elevated Dinesh Lathi, the former executive chairman, to chief executive officer, succeeding Doug Ewert, who had retired from the top post at the end of September 2018.
Lathi has been highly critical of the company’s past strategies, saying the retailer has underinvested in its

Another Change Hits Italy’s Men’s Brands as Corneliani CEO Exits

MILAN — Marking yet another change within Italy’s men’s wear industry, Corneliani SpA chief executive officer Paolo Roviera has exited the storied company and has been succeeded by Luigi Ferrando.
In a brief statement, the Mantua-based firm said it “confirms the development goals of the Corneliani brand, in line with the strategies outlined in 2016.” The date refers to the acquisition by Bahrain-based Investcorp of a majority stake in Corneliani in June that year and signaling the fund’s increasing focus on luxury. The deal was meant at the time to be preparatory to an initial public offering, which has not taken place, and also overcome succession plans.
Ferrando joins Corneliani, known for its sleek tailoring and high-end quality products, from a different sector, as he leverages experience in furniture. His curriculum lists managerial positions at Unopiù and Arquati as well as lighting firms Targetti and Louis Poulsen.
Roviera arrived at Corneliani in September 2016, tasked with the expansion of the brand globally. He was previously ceo of Pal Zileri, controlled by Qatar-based Mayhoola.
Carlalberto Corneliani, who founded the company in 1958 with his late brother Claudio, was succeeded by Investcorp’s Hazem Ben-Gacem as chairman of Corneliani.
Investcorp, a leading provider and manager of alternative investment products, controls the Danish

Lucas Ossendrijver Exits Lanvin

PARIS — Lucas Ossendrijver is exiting Lanvin, the house said on Thursday.
The news confirms a report by WWD that the designer was parting ways with the brand in the wake of sweeping changes at the historic French house under its new owner Fosun International.
Elie Top, the house’s longtime jewelry designer, is also rumored to be eying the door, marking the true end of an era, as one of the last creative links to Alber Elbaz.
After 13 years at Lanvin, Ossendrijver’s final collection as its men’s designer is the pre-collection being presented to buyers at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, according to an industry source.
Lanvin is expected to pull out from the runway calendar for the upcoming Paris Fashion Week Men’s in January, the source said.
Lanvin said Ossendrijver’s successor will be named soon.
Lanvin has been without a women’s designer since the departure of Olivier Lapidus last March, and it has yet to make an official announcement regarding his successor.
WWD broke the news on Oct. 8 that Lanvin has settled on Bruno Sialelli, the former head of men’s wear at Loewe, to design its women’s and men’s wear collections. It is understood it is in negotiations with Loewe parent LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton over

Louise Trotter Exits Joseph as Creative Director

GOODBYE, JOSEPH: Louise Trotter is leaving her post as creative director of Joseph after nine years. Her last collection for the British label will be pre-fall 2019, WWD has learned.
Hirosuke Takagi, chief executive officer of Joseph, said Trotter had decided to leave, having made “a significant contribution to the brand, in particular our international expansion, the launch of men’s wear and, most recently, accessories.” He added that the company was grateful “for her important contribution to Joseph and the foundation she has built for its continuous success.”
Trotter said her departure marks the end of an era. “Working for Joseph for the past nine years has been an incredible experience, and I feel very lucky to have been surrounded by such an amazing and talented team who worked alongside me with passion and creativity. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to my team and the brilliant collaborators who have traveled on this journey with me.”
Trotter will leave at the end of August and a new creative director will be appointed in due course, the company said. Trotter joined Joseph in 2009 from the British high street label Jigsaw, where she also held the title of creative director. Before Jigsaw, she served as

Leah Remini Will Return To ‘Kevin Can Wait’ As Erinn Hayes Exits

Things just got weird for the women in Kevin James’ sitcom life. Erinn Hayes is out after one season of playing James’ wife on the successful show “Kevin Can Wait,” Variety reported over the weekend.

And Leah Remini, James’ wife from his previous comedy hit, “The King of Queens,” is back in.

Not as his spouse, mind you, but as his former partner on the police force. Remini reunited with James in the two-part Season 1 finale as undercover cop Vanessa Cellucci. The Hollywood Reporter reported earlier that Remini would return in that role as a regular next season.

As far as ratings were concerned, “Kevin Can Wait” didn’t appear to need any changes. According to Deadline, the CBS show finished the season as the No. 1 new comedy with 9.19 million total viewers and a 2.1 rating for adults aged 18 to 49.

Hayes didn’t reveal much in a farewell tweet. 

Sources told Variety that the change was not about her performance, but that the show was going in a different direction.

Under any circumstances, her on-screen chemistry with James would be tough to match the nine-season run of James and Remini on “King of Queens.”

Mui Exits Hudson’s Bay Amid Cuts

The marketing and fashion departments at Hudson’s Bay Corp. have taken hits as the company moves to cut overhead in a difficult retail environment.
Among those who were let go in the past several weeks include Nelson Mui, vice president and men’s fashion director for the Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor divisions.
At HBC, Mui was a fixture at the men’s runway shows in Europe and New York as well as the trade shows in Las Vegas.

Supreme’s Angelo Baque Exits Brand

NEW YORK — Supreme’s longtime brand director Angelo Baque has left the streetwear firm.
Baque has launched his own creative agency, Baque Creative, and will continue to consult for Supreme. He said he has not been replaced.
According to Baque, who has been working on his agency since late last year, Supreme is one of his clients and he will still oversee the overall art direction for the brand — including look book and editorial visuals — and offer his opinions about collections.
Baque, through his own creative agency, also works with Nike NSW and Converse.
“I spent 10 years with the brand and I’ve changed a lot in those 10 years,” said Baque, who met James Jebbia, Supreme’s owner and founder, when he was a store associate at Stüssy. “When I started with Supreme, I didn’t know what the hell I was going to do. There was no title and it was just wide open. The company was so small back then. It was 2006 and I was able to figure it out and see where I fit in. I have a photo background and I felt like I could help the brand and bring a new perspective to the visuals.”

Jessica Capshaw Reflects On All Those ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Exits

It’s been a strange few years for “Grey’s Anatomy” fans. Over the last three seasons, series regulars and fan favorites Sandra Oh (Cristina Yang), Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherd) and Sara Ramirez (Callie Torres) have all exited the long-running ABC show. It’s been tough to say goodbye, but that’s just the way it’s going to be, at least according to Jessica Capshaw

Capshaw, who plays pediatric surgeon Arizona Robbins on “Grey’s,” stopped by Build Series to chat with The Huffington Post about the return of Season 13 last week and shared her feelings on the multiple deaths and departures of beloved characters. 

“Thirteen years is a really long time. Think about where you were 13 years ago,” she said of the long-running series. “I think everybody’s thirst is different. You have an idea that you want to stay somewhere for a little bit and then maybe a longer time ― it’s just really person-dependent. And sometimes it’s story-dependent ― sometimes a story just has to go a certain way. So, I think [the show] has gotten to go through a lot of different iterations. It’s a really long time, so for people to hang in there or exit gracefully or exit abruptly is sort of, I think, par for the course.” 

Some good news, though: Capshaw herself has already been through a lot on the show, which is why she thinks an on-screen death would be totally out of the question for Arizona. 

“No [I don’t worry about dying]. I already lost a leg!” she joked. “If I’m going to go, I don’t think I’m going to die! I’ll exit gracefully.” 

(Side note: please don’t go yet!)

 Capshaw also has hope for Callie (Sara Ramirez), whom she knows is “somewhere in Shondaland.”  

“Listen, it really helped me, because it was a really long period of time to be playing one-half of a partnership,” the actress said of Ramirez’s exit. “[Their relationship] was so championed and so well-embraced and so beloved, and I felt so grateful for that. We had so much fun doing it, from dancing our hearts out to car crashes and plane crashes. But we had a lot of fun, so for it to end where it ended, it feels so much nicer for me to know that Callie is somewhere in the world and Arizona still exists and she has permission to go and find her own happiness because Callie’s not there. I think it would be harder to really move on … It would’ve just been a different story, which would have been super fun, too. [But] it’s comforting for me to know that that love is not lost. It’s just Callie is somewhere else and now Arizona is moving on and trying to find her happiness.” 

Let’s hope Arizona’s happiness comes first in 2017, OK? 

“Grey’s Anatomy” Season 13 returns Thursday at 8 p.m. ET. Watch Jessica Capshaw’s full Build Series interview below.
