Laurent is poised to lead Chloé through a period of creative renewal, fostering growth alongside Chemena Kamali.

Laurent Malecaze expressed his honor in leading the iconic French luxury Maison, expressing excitement about the collaboration with Chemena Kamali. Philippe Fortunato expressed confidence in Laurent's ability to energize the organization and pave the way for a sustained period of growth.
