Like me, many of you will be sad to hear that Emily Current and Meritt Eliott have decided to part ways with their eponymous label.
“We are so proud of what we have accomplished with Current/Elliott,” the pair said in a joint statement. “Parting ways has been a difficult decision, but we are thrilled for our next chapter in design and to perpetuate our whimsical Americana aesthetic across multiple categories.”
While the duo haven’t actually revealed what the reason behind the decision is, to many, the news doesn’t come as a surprise. There has been talk over the past few years that all hasn’t been well at the brand between the designers and owner Serge Azria. Back in 2010, for example, Azria spoke out and alleged that the pair did not have anything to do with the brand’s collaboration with Marni, something the girls vigorously denied.
Hopefully the next move is the right one for them and is only the start of good things to come.
