Julie Gilhart and Judy Collinson Leave Barneys

Julie Gilhart

Some major reshuffling went down at Barneys this week: Mark Lee, who became CEO of the department store in September, has named Daniella Vitale (his former colleague at Gucci) as chief merchant and executive vice president overseeing all of womenswear and Barneys.com. Vitale succeeds Judy Collinson, who is leaving along with another beloved Barneys veteran, senior vice president and women’s fashion director Julie Gilhart. The retailer announced that both employees are departing to "pursue other opportunities." [Fashionologie]
