Just like myself and many others in the fashion industry has already expected, Peter Copping will now take on the role as Oscar de la Renta‘s creative director, effective November 3. Prior to this position, Copping held the role of artistic director at Nina Ricci for five years. The British designer also spent 12 years at Louis Vuitton, serving as Marc Jacobs‘ assistant and helping launch the Ready-To-Wear line.

As WWD reports, this is the first time the brand has brought in a designer in this capacity.

According to ODLR, Copping will be tasked with setting “the design direction across all product categories, reporting to Oscar de la Renta and Alex Bolen, the company’s chief executive officer.”

de la Renta told WWD, “I’m very happy Peter has agreed to join us. He is a great talent and along with our shared design sensibilities, we both have a deep curiosity about the wider world, from music and art to architecture and gardens. Our industry has not always done the best job when it comes to changes in design leadership. My hope is that, in leading this selection, and actively participating in the transition, I can ensure the right design future for our company and brand.”

In February 2015, Copping will debut his first ODLR collection for the Fall 2015 season.
