Devi Kroell Leaves Her Own Design Firm
Kroell began the company with a line of luxury handbags in 2004, branching out into other accessories and finally showing ready to wear in 2009. Devi Kroell opened a Madison Avenue flagship in New York last fall. Although the announcement was just made, Devi Kroell is already said to have other projects in the works. She's far from the first designer to leave an eponymous company behind, others include Jil Sander and Helmut Lang.
