Longtime Aquascutum Designers Resign to Focus on New Projects

>> After turning in a well-received Fall 2010 collection — thought the designs "marked a pivotal moment" between Aquascutum's heritage and modern design sensibility — womenswear designer Michael Herz and his menswear counterpart Graeme Fidler have handed in their resignations, Aquascutum confirmed.

The designers, who have been at the company since 2002 and 2000, respectively, have endured a rollercoaster of management changes — most recently, last Fall, when Aquascutum was purchased by BFC and Jaeger chairman Harold Tillman and chief executive Belinda Earl.  WWD reports an industry source saying that both designers are angling to move on to new projects. "They've had a great time at the brand, but they want to move on, and we fully understand that," said Earl. "We wish them well, and the situation is amicable."

As for their replacements . . . » Earl confirmed that the designers would be replaced in due course, but noted that Aquascutum has a "strong design team" already in place. "[Fidler and Herz] are working out their notice period, so for now, it's business as usual."
