ETRO APPOINTS MARCO DE VINCENZO AS CREATIVE DIRECTOR
The Italian luxury fashion house founded by Gerolamo Etro in 1968 is pleased to announce Marco De Vincenzo as the new Creative Director for the women’s, men’s and home collections, effective June 1st, 2022. Marco De Vincenzo’s debut at the Maison will take place with the women’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection, which will show during Milan Fashion Week in September 2022.
Marco De Vincenzo stands out as one of the most innovative designers of the new generation.

Fabrizio Cardinali, Etro’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “As part of the brand’s new course, we welcome with enthusiasm the arrival of Marco De Vincenzo. Through his sensitivity for colours, prints, and fabrics, we are sure that Marco will be able to translate at best Etro’s extraordinary heritage into new interpretations for the different brand’s collections and also giving a new drive to the world of accessories”.
