After less than 2 years as Creative Director, Peter Copping has announced that he is leaving the helm at Oscar de la Renta. Copping said in a statement:
“After almost two years at Oscar de la Renta, personal circumstances require me to return to Europe. I have loved my time in New York where I hope to return at some point in the future.”
Copping was personally selected by Oscar de la Renta himself to succeed him as the brand’s creative director, and he’s been producing critically acclaimed work ever since he took over. No official replacement has been named yet, but rumors are already flying about who will take over. I guess we’ll see.
