The US-based company has appointed John Varvatos as Chief Design Officer, effective as of the 11th of September. He had been consulting for Under Armour since earlier this year
Varvatos will be responsible for leading the creative design direction of the company, overseeing the design studios in New York, Baltimore, and Portland. He is expected to bring to the company his “design aesthetic, mastery and acute sense of detail”, which contributed to the success of brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Converse, and his namesake brand. He is credited with the creation of both the boxer brief at Calvin Klein and the laceless sneaker for Converse.

“We are thrilled to welcome John into the Under Armour family”, said Stephanie Linnartz, Under Armour President and Chief Executive Officer. “His track record and thirty-year career speaks for itself. John will work in partnership with our product team to bring apparel, footwear and accessories from concept to commercialization, blending performance and style”, she concluded.

“I am so excited to join Under Armour, an iconic American brand. The innovation, design and mission of the brand has never been more relevant as consumers demand clothes that function for both sport and everyday activities.  I cannot wait to unveil that next chapter in Under Armour’s incredible story”, commented John Varvatos.
