A new round of musical chairs at megabrands is afoot. As Kering tries to figure out who’s going to replace Alessandro Michele at Gucci following his abrupt departure last month, another brand weighing options about its next designer is Givenchy. The work of Matthew Williams for Givenchy has not proved to be a smashing success. The young designer could be on his way out in the first half of next year as his contract ends, Miss Tweed has learned.

One credible name in the hat to replace him is Julien Dossena. “I know that Dossena is in advanced talks with Givenchy,” one industry source said. The 40-year-old French designer is said to be exiting Paco Rabanne after more than a decade at the Puig-owned brand.

Italian entrepreneur Andrea Guerra is joining Prada Group to strengthen the leadership of the Italian fashion group, Miss Tweed has learned. Guerra will be part of the team ofindustry veterans put together by Prada Group Co-CEO Patrizio Bertelli to support his son Lorenzo when he succeeds him in a few years.

Guerra, 57, has been close friends with Patrizio Bertelli, now 76, for many years, two sources close to the matter said. Their relationship goes back to around 2005 when Prada started working as licensor with Luxottica, now called EssilorLuxottica, and Guerra was running the Italian eyewear maker.

Balenciaga is facing huge flak over a series of ads it published last month featuring a small child clutching a handbag that looks like a teddy bear in sexual bondage gear. Talk about a no-no! Even for the daring brand it is known as, this is going too far. Making matters worse, some of the children involved are the offspring of Balenciaga employees, Miss Tweed found out. The information was confirmed by a spokesman for the brand.
