    Lanvin Group has announced the appointment of Peter Copping as the new artistic director for its flagship brand Lanvin.

    According to the brand, this move marks a significant step for the oldest continually operating couture house in France as it seeks to reinvigorate its presence in the modern fashion landscape.

    Peter Copping, a British national, will assume his role in September 2024, overseeing womenswear and menswear collections. Copping studied at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art in London, before launching a career in fashion that began at Sonia Rykiel.

    Copping later spent over a decade at Louis Vuitton, working closely with Marc Jacobs as head of womenswear. He later became creative director at Oscar de la Renta and Nina Ricci.

    Copping's hiring is in line with Lanvin's continuous brand makeover, which has aimed to infuse its products with a contemporary sensibility of French finesse and radical chic for the last two years.

    This appointment follows news that Lanvin Group, whose parent company is Chinese corporation Fosun International Ltd, will list in New York after merging with a special purpose acquisition company. With brands like Sergio Rossi, Wolford, and others under its portfolio, the Shanghai-based luxury conglomerate whose assets are worth a combined $1.9 billion plans to raise up to $544 million for its upcoming listing.
