He has made an outstanding contribution to the company’s legacy and in writing the codes of the brand,” the statement added⁣ ⁣ For his part, the designer said: “I started Vetements because I was bored of fashion and against all odds fashion did change once and forever since Vetements appeared and it also opened a new door for so many.

Demna 2014年與弟弟 Guram 共同創立 Vetements ,「 我當初因為對時尚圈感到厭倦而創立了 Vetements ,Vetements 的出現,也為很多人打開了一扇新的大門, 」因此,「我認為我的任務已經大功告成,Vetements 也已經足夠成熟發展成一個可以獨立續寫屬於自己全新篇章的品牌。」Demna 表示。

Vetements CEO、身為品牌共同創辦人的 Guram 表示,「Demna 過去幾年所缺德的成就代表了 Vetements 品牌歷史的重要篇章。我們非常感謝 Demna 為品牌發展所作出的貢獻。」至於未來,「我們將不忘初衷,繼續不斷突破框架,堅守信念,繼續支持創意與才華」。
