Who is Sabato De Sarno, new Creative Director for Gucci•
Posted on January 29 2023
Like Michele when he was promoted from the in-house team in 2015, De Sarno is a relative unknown in the wider fashion world, having worked primarily behind the scenes.
Born in Naples, he began his career at Prada in 2005, then moved to Dolce & Gabbana. He joined Valentino in 2009, where he held several positions before being appointed fashion director overseeing both men's and women's collections, working closely with the chief designer Pierpaolo Piccioli.
The Italian designer will debut his first collection for the brand in September.
