Another day, another creative director is out at a luxury house.

Italian fashion house Emilio Pucci announced that it’s parting ways with Massimo Giorgetti. He will leave this month. It is understood that his last collection for Pucci will be for resort 2018. He joined the Milan-based brand less than two years ago, September of 2015, succeeding Peter Dundas.

The originally contract was believed to be a three-year deal, but the two parties have mutually agreed not to renew it.

“This experience with Emilio Pucci, one of the most representative and historic brands in fashion, was an inspiring journey, which has also contributed to my professional growth,” Giorgetti said. “Today, my brand needs more and more of my attention and all of my energy. I would like to thank Laudomia Pucci, the LVMH Group, [chief executive officer] Mauro Grimaldi and all the Emilio Pucci’s team, for supporting me in this beautiful adventure.”

“We have decided in total agreement to end the partnership,” Grimaldi said. “I would like to thank, personally and on behalf of the company, Massimo Giorgetti for the great professionalism shown during these two years of collaboration.”

Pucci has already interviewed some candidates, but a successor has yet to be announced.

Emilio Pucci is controlled by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, which acquired the brand in 2002 for 38 million euros, or $35.9 million.

Giorgetti is also the founder and designer of the Milan-based, independent MSGM brand, launched in 2009 and which he continues to lead.
