Guyon was in charge of style for four years at Schiaparelli, the couture label relaunched by Tod’s boss Diego Della Valle, and is now working again alongside Chiuri, after a previous stint together at Valentino.

Guyon was studio director at Valentino when Maria Grazia Chiuri shared the Italian label's creative directorship with Pier Paolo Piccioli, and has been collaborating with Chiuri again since the start of this summer, according to a report from Business of Fashion, confirmed to FashionNetwork.com by Christian Dior. Dior did not indicate Guyon’s exact title, nor the scope of his functions within Chiuri’s studio.
