Katharina Schlager, CEO and Creative Director, has left the management of op Couture Brillen GmbH on 30 November 2020 and will continue working for the company in an advisory capacity until the end of March. Allan Rasmussen has been Head of Product & Design for CAZAL since February 2021.
Katharina Schlager has been observing CAZAL from the inside as Co-Director and Creative Head for almost one year. She has been accompanying the firm from the outside as “Creative free spirit” since the end of last year.
Last year, Co-Director Klaus Lippert and Katharina Schlager provided important inspiration together for the future development of the brand.
“We see this not as the end of a collaboration but as the beginning of exciting partnerships with artists, designers, and other creative free spirits”, says Klaus Lippert.
The Capsule Collection “BEING GREEK” developed under the motto “Kat for CAZAL” is being presented in spring 2021. “The limited-edition sunglasses were created as a homage to the designer Cari Zalloni, and they embody all the attributes that have made CAZAL an icon among eyewear brands”, enthuses Schlager.
Allan Rasmussen took over creative responsibility for product development at CAZAL in February 2021. In the last 25 years, Rasmussen worked as Head of Design for renowned industry giants, for which he was successfully responsible for leading-edge product development.
“With his expertise in managing collections and his passion for the CAZAL brand, Allan Rasmussen suits us perfectly”, says Lippert.
