Rumors circulated post his swan song final collection for collection for Emilio Pucci, where he served as creative director since 2008, that the Norwegian designer may rejoin Cavalli where he worked from 2002 to 2005.

This is a homecoming for me. It is an honor for me to continue to evolve the wonderful world of Roberto Cavalli and I am very excited by the possibilities and potential of this unique brand. I cannot wait to get started.
