Just last year, the fashion community was lamenting the end of long-term designer tenure, and that was in response to big names spending less than ten years at a single house. Now, we’re entering an even newer era: a time of yearlong designers, the latest being Peter Dundas’ exit at Roberto Cavalli.

In March of 2015, Dundas took the reins of the brand after a stint at Pucci. This departure comes only a week of Justin O’Shea’s departure from Brioni, who spent only six months with the company.

On the leave of Dundas, Roberto Cavalli’s CEO, Gian Giacomo, says “On behalf of Roberto Cavalli and our shareholders, we thank Peter Dundas for his contribution to the brand, and we wish him well for his future. As Roberto Cavalli goes through a period of transformation, the design team will carry on and the appointment of a new creative director will be made in due course.”

How this unending game of designer musical chairs will end is yet to be seen, and, with this latest wave of repositioning, is likely nowhere close to being over.
