Henry’s departure after three years at the label was announced in March with management saying then that collections would be designed by an in-house team until a replacement was found.
“I am very happy to welcome Rushemy and Lisi,” Charlotte Tasset, Nina Ricci’s general manager, said on Wednesday.

“Their universe expresses a passionate force, a sincerity and an extraordinary boldness deeply rooted in their time.”
The pair won the Premiere Vision grand prize at France’s Hyères fashion festival in April and also qualified as finalists in this year’s LVMH Prize.
