Wilts will continue to be involved in the company's collection-related projects until the end of December 2022.
Additionally, Andrea Cannelloni will return to Hugo Boss for a year as Creative Advisor from 1 March 2022. Until 2008, Cannelloni worked in various creative functions at the company. During this time, he was responsible for developing the casualwear division at Boss, launching the Boss Orange brand.
Daniel Grieder, CEO of Hugo Boss, said: "I look forward to working with Marco Falcioni and Andrea Cannelloni, who both bring outstanding creative style and expertise in collection development.
"We want to be a 24/7 lifestyle brand for men and for women, reach out to younger consumers and turn them into true fans. I am therefore convinced, that Marco Falcioni is the perfect choice for us to develop our collections into the future. He has an absolute feel for trends and hits the zeitgeist and aspirations of the new generations. Andrea Cannelloni will in return be of great relevance when it comes to bringing our casual and athleisure business back to full scale in the upcoming years."
