Ferragamo Says Creative Head Massimiliano Giornetti Resigned

Salvatore Ferragamo SpA creative director Massimiliano Giornetti has quit the Italian luxury company after five years in the role.

The shoemaker confirmed his departure in an e-mailed statement late Thursday. Giornetti joined Ferragamo in 2000 as menswear designer, before being promoted to oversee all collections in 2011.

“We will take this opportunity to revisit our approach to creativity,” Chief Executive Officer Michele Norsa said in the statement. The company didn’t name a replacement, saying it will count on its internal creative team.

Ferragamo joins Dior in being without a head designer.
