It seems like a chapter is already closing for infamous Vetements. Demna Gvasalia, who founded the experimental brand five years ago, has just announced he will be leaving the venture. The decision is effective immediately.
“Vetements has always been a collective of creative minds. We will continue to push the boundaries even further, respecting codes and the authentic values of the brand, and keep on supporting honest creativity and genuine talent,” Guram Gvasalia, Demna’s brother co-founder and CEO of the brand stated in an official press release. “What Demna has accomplished over the past few years represents a key chapter in the story of Vetements. We are very grateful to Demna for having contributed to the great momentum of the house,” the second Gvasalia concluded.
The main man felt the need to share a few words on the situation too. “I feel that I have accomplished my mission of a conceptualist and design innovator at this exceptional brand and Vetements has matured into a company that can evolve its creative heritage into a new chapter on its own,” he added.
