Natalie Ratabesi, who recently stepped down as creative director of Philosophy, has now transitioned into the role of creative director at Vince. Before Philosophy, Ratabesi filled her resume with gigs at Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, and Ralph Lauren.
Ratabesi’s womenswear vision is based on the self-assurance women obtain from dressing well.
Karin Gregersen, president at Vince, confirms Ratabesi’s vision for the brand, telling WWD, “Natalie has a very modern sensibility, which is very close to the Vince DNA and core value, she really has a very sophisticated design sensibility. As we increase and elevate our fashion point of view, she’s such a critical part of this process for us. She creates silhouettes that are modern, understated and cool and understands our neutral, rich colour palette… I think she’ll really leverage our brand DNA.”
We’re eager to see the fruits of Natalie’s labor, which will debut for pre fall 2015.
