After Tuesday's announcement that Vince co-founders Rea Laccone and Christopher LaPolice were exiting the knitwear brand, WWD has some good news! Beloved designer Doo Ri Chung, who left her namesake label under mysterious circumstances earlier this year, has been named creative director of the label, which has a developed a bit of a cult following for its knitwear offerings.

"[Chung is] very well known for her design and technical aesthetic. She has a modern design aesthetic and a real understanding of our customer," said Vince CEO Jill Granoff. Chung will be leaving New York and relocating to Vince's Los Angeles design studio, where she will be responsible for design, product development and creative branding initiatives, WWD reports.
