Mizzen + Main CEO to Depart, Stitch Fix Exec to Take Helm

Mizzen + Main turned to Stitch Fix to find its next chief.
The Dallas-based online men’s wear brand has tapped Chris Phillips, the head of men’s and children’s wear at Stitch Fix, to replace Kevin Lavelle, its founder and ceo. Lavelle will be leaving Mizzen + Main to join The Seminar Network, part of the Koch political network in Washington, according to CNBC, which first reported the news.
Lavelle said he had no plans to leave the company he started in 2012, but when the Koch family reached out to him about joining The Seminar Network, a business that brings together social entrepreneurs to improve the world, he decided to take the plunge.
“It was a shocking request, but they have ambitious goals to make a significant impact on society,” Lavelle said, adding that their mission “aligns with how I view the world.”
So he set out to find someone to succeed him. “I believe we’ve found the absolute perfect person to take this company to the next level,” he said. “I’m actually more excited about the future with a seasoned retail operator on board.”
Lavelle said he will continue to be involved with Mizzen + Main as chairman and an investor. He will remain

Kenzo Exec to ‘Further Develop’ Marc Jacobs as CEO

NEW YORK — LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton has charged Kenzo’s chief executive officer Eric Marechalle with leading the turnaround effort at Marc Jacobs International.
He is to leave Kenzo and become ceo of Marc Jacobs International in the third quarter of the year.
This confirms a report in WWD on June 21 that Marechalle would take over from Sebastian Suhl, who is leaving LVMH “to pursue personal interests.”
Marechalle will continue to report to Pierre-Yves Roussel, ceo of LVMH Fashion Group, which spans a host of brands from Givenchy and Céline to Emilio Pucci, along with Kenzo and Marc Jacobs.
Roussel said Marechalle’s “strong experience in brand management” would “give a new impetus” to Marc Jacobs and “further help us develop it, in collaboration with Marc.”
LVMH reported solid business in the first quarter, with chief financial officer Jean-Jacques Guiony flagging the Jacobs business as “probably one of the few negative performances we have in the group.”
Marechalle’s successor at Kenzo will be announced “shortly,” LVMH noted.
WWD reported on May 26 that Suhl would soon exit Marc Jacobs, which he joined in 2014. It is understood he will remain at the management helm through a transition period. His next move could not immediately be learned.
