The appointment comes after a turbulent period for the brand that saw Mounir Moufarrige ousted as CEO after bringing Linday Lohan into the label as “Creative Adviser,” a role in which she shared design responsibilities with Estrella Archs. Archs replaced designer Esteban Cortazar, who chose to resign rather than share creative responsibilities with Lohan.

Lohan and Arch’s first collection was reportedly rushed, almost unanimously panned by fashion press and buyers, and even by label namesake Emanuel Ungaro himself.
