Louis Vuitton hires a head of women's leather goods division

Louis Vuitton has announced that Johnny Coca (ex creative director of Mulberry) will join the company in the role of the women's leather goods director. Coca has already worked for Louis Vuitton after studying at the Beaux-Arts and the School of Arts Boulle appliqués in Paris.

“I am proud to join Nicolas Ghesquière and the Louis Vuitton teams to develop the women's handbag lines and fine leather goods,” Coca said in a statement. “For me, this is a real return to my roots, where I had the chance to live my passion for the first time and to learn the fundamentals of my profession in the heart of the workshops in Asnières. A new stage in my own creative journey is now opening up for me in this laboratory between heritage and modernity.”
