Like Wintour's position at Condé Nast, the artistic director position at BOSS is entirely new and will have Wu overseeing his team at its German HQ, opening a flagship store in New York, and continuing to develop his own design label, too. "I have long been a fan of HUGO BOSS’ vast tradition and lineage in extraordinary tailoring," Wu states in a press release. "With the state-of-the-art facilities that are unique to the HUGO BOSS design labs, I plan to develop a strong, feminine womenswear collection that reciprocates the brand’s authority in menswear."
His first collection will debut in New York during the pre-fall '14 shows.
