His name is Felipe Oliveira Baptista and he takes the reins from Christophe Lemaire, who leaves to succeed Jean Paul Gaultier at Hermès. Today is his first day, but his first full collection won't come out for another few seasons, for spring 2012. He says he plans to "experiment with colors." [Fashionologie]
