Blum, who spent 15 years with Kenneth Cole Productions before leaving to become CEO of jewelry company David Yurman, returned as vice chairman earlier this year.

Company founder Cole had already indicated that industry veteran Blum might get the top job.

Blum will take charge on June 20, the fashion industry trade journal said.

The company could not be immediately reached for comment.
