Nina Ricci is getting ready for expansion and is staffing up its fashion and accessory department in order to do so. Starting in May the product and merchandising director at Sonia Rykiel, Sophie Templier, will be joining Ricci as the new accessory director. Along with the new addition of Templier the senior RTW designer at Céline, Iliana Giannakoura, is set to become the chief ready-to-wear designer later this month under creative director Peter Copping. Past jobs for Giannakoura include Givenchy and Balenciaga.
