French fashion house Chloé may part ways with its current creative director Claire Waight Keller this March. The designer, who has helmed the label since 2011, will reportedly be replaced by Louis Vuitton's design director and second-in-command to Nicholas Ghesquière, Natacha Ramsay-Levi.

Sources told Reuters that one of the factors that played a part in Keller's decision to not renew her contract that ends in March, was the challenging commute between her home in London and office in Paris – she and her family moved back to London in June last year.

If rumours are true and Ramsay-Levi joins Chloé after her contract with Louis Vuitton ends in March too, her first collection for Chloé would presumably be for the Spring 2018 season.
