Extremely stylish man/fashion industry favourite Justin O'Shea is making a dramatic career change, leaving his post as fashion director of MyTheresa to take the helm of Italian menswear label Brioni. The Australian ex-pat will be replacing Brendan Mullane as creative director, an unexpected move considering his background is in fashion buying, and he has no formal training in fashion design.
"An unconventional profile for such a position, Justin brings a holistic approach and strong business understanding," said Grita Loebsack, Kering's (Brioni's parent company) CEO of luxury couture and leather goods emerging brands division. "I believe his vision will accurately translate into this role and add a distinctive signature to the house."
Aside from this new role, Justin also has a full-time job as one-half of the fashion industry's most stylish couple (according to us, anyway). His longtime girlfriend Veronika Heilbrunner is the ex-style editor of Harper's Bazaar Germany, and currently runs her own website, Hey Woman! Together, they are among the most-photographed people during fashion month and - added bonus - also happen to be extremely adorable. We're using Justin's exciting new venture as an excuse to reflect on their most stylish couple moments in the gallery above - that's a good enough reason, right?
