New Look directors

Two New Look directors have departed the retailer, just days after it revealed dismal annual profits that sent its shares plummeting.

According to Drapers,  menswear director Christopher Englinde and accessories and beauty director Amanda Wain have left the business.

Englinde joined the retailer in 2015 and was tasked with relaunching its menswear offering, overseeing the launch of 21 menswear-only stores across the UK.

He previously worked at H&M for 10 years, where he also held the position of menswear director.

From July, Englinde will act as interim managing director of his partner’s menswear brand Ljung, which trades across Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

He told Drapers that although he was “proud” of his team‘s achievements at the company, New Look “wasn‘t the right fit” for him moving forward.

“I‘m looking for a new challenge and a company with a clear vision and strategy and good values,” he said.

Wain has worked at New Look since 2013 when she joined as merchandising and design director for footwear, accessories and beauty.

Last week the fashion retailer revealed a 44 per cent drop in profits for the last year, becoming the latest high-profile casualty of the struggling mid-market fashion sector.
